Sushi restaurant in the middle of Nishiki market - the menu in english has a good range of sushi and sashimi all made fresh to order. Try the mackerel sushi a local specialist and of course the Tuna sushi and sashimi . if you have not tasted Japan fresh tuna then you have missed out.

Nice spot in the midst of the Nishiki Market. Tuna clearly a top choice. We had a tuna roll plus a Chirashii bowl. Service was extremely helpful. Overall very fresh fish but the tuna was exceptional. A delight for lunch.

It was a little past noon when we stumbled upon this place while walking through Nishiki Market. We noticed a lot of people inside so we decided to take our lunch here and give it a try.

Neighbourhood Profile
Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes. Trends-in-the-making can be spotted in the tall windows of several one-of-a-kind stores featuring local labels and modish boutiques. Arcades, outdoor concert spaces, mega department stores, and small, enchanting cafes have sprung up to accommodate the increasing traffic. Whether looking for souvenirs and kitsch on Shinkyogoku Street, or scoping out the massive food court and restaurant floor at Takashimaya Department store, there's something for every wallet or purse, and a buyer for every item.
