A classic sushi restaurant with 70 years history

The sushi restaurant, Kizushi(喜寿司), has served classical Tokyo style sushi since 1927 in  Nihonbashi-ningyocho(日本橋人形町), an old town nearby Tokyo station.

The chef, Mr. Ryuichi Yui, is a third generation of this sushi restaurant, born in 1942. He started his career as a French cook and turned back to his home, Kizushi, to become a sushi chef.

Kizushi preserves an authentic Tokyo style sushi. For example, Mr. Yui elaborately makes shrimp into an artistic shape.

My favourite ones are shrimp(saimaki-ebi/才巻海老), ark shell(akagai/赤貝), tuna(maguro/鮪), and swordfish(kajiki/カジキ), which is one of a traditional Tokyo style sushi item.

This restaurant opens in lunch time and is not so clouded. It has lunch course with two prices: JPY3,500 and JPY5,000, including 8 pieces of nigiri sushi and 3 pieces of sushi roll.
