Story & Recommendation
Enjoy a high quality and delicious specialty, Saba sushi, served as a set with sushi of your choice
A sushi restaurant with approximately 100 years of history, located opposite Yasaka Shrine. The interior of the restaurant is furnished with wooden walls, tables, and chairs, and adorned with a number of decorations that create a traditional Japanese atmosphere. Its specialty dish is Saba sushi. Saba sushi is a type of sushi that has been well loved in Kyoto since the olden times. It is made by placing mackerel pickled in vinegar on top of vinegar-flavored rice. There are many sushi restaurants that serve saba sushi in Kyoto. From among these, IZUJU's Saba sushi is known to feature delicious mackerel with a high quality flavor. The kelp that surrounds the sushi helps to highlight its delicious flavor even more. The mackerel is cut into thick strips to provide a superb texture, and as soon as you bite into it you will be able to feel the fat of the mackerel spreading deliciously around your mouth. In addition, apart from Saba sushi, the restaurant also offers Inari sushi and warm Steamed sushi. We also recommend ordering a set of saba sushi combined with sushi of your choice.
