They will explain their menu to you using a tablet, all in English. They are really thorough, but if you have something you want to know, just ask them! They will answer in fluent English.
As the young master of Kikyo Sushi is a certified International Kikisake-shi (sake sommelier), you can taste delicious sake here.
International Kikisake-shi is a person who not only knows a lot about sake, but also knows how to teach people of different countries, economic backgrounds, cultures, and traditions, how to enjoy sake.
He will ask your questions about sake and tell you what sake goes the best with each dish, so if you want to have sake, ask him about his opinion.
You can also have a tasting set like in the picture. By drinking different kinds of sake, you’ll notice that they taste different depending on where they’re made and what sake brewery has made them and that they have different tastes and fragrances. You get to drink many types of sake, so this is a nice set for those who want to find out what type of sake they like. A set containing three types of sake is 700 yen and one with four types is 900 yen.
