Chirashi / ¥1,150
Several kinds of thin-sliced, soy sauce flavored seafood, including tuna, sea bream, conger eel, squid, and octopus are provided in generous quantities underneath the shredded yellow omelet.

Clear broth soup / ¥200
A light soup with the taste of dashi stock. Combines well with the soy sauce and sushi vinegar used in the sushi dishes.
Gari "pickled ginger" / Free

- Order Tips -
The Chirashi is generously portioned, so it will satisfy both women and men. The Nigiri will probably satisfy women, but men may find it's not quite enough by itself. An additional 3-4 pieces of sushi will help to complete the meal.
