Top-notch artisan sushi: fabulous balance of sushi topping, rice, and wasabi

Shinji Kanesaka opened his first sushi restaurant in Ginza in 2000 and was awarded two Michelin stars in 2021. 

In 2012, he opened a sushi restaurant with 12 counter seats in the Palace Hotel Tokyo. 

Choosing prime ingredients, Kanesaka goes to great lengths to obtain the best balance of a slice of fish, rice seasoned with vinegar and salt, and wasabi. He also calculates the maturity of a fish, and the temperature and humidity of his sushi, so that guests can savor it in its most exquisite condition.

For this reason, Kanesaka’s sushi is often described as “artistic.” 

Furthermore, it is not only his techniques that set Kanesaka apart from other sushi artisans. He is also devoted to promoting sushi culture globally. He has opened branches in Singapore and Macao, and a three-month-only “pop-up” restaurant in Cannes, France.

It is a restaurant where you can experience the essence of Edo-mae (authentic Tokyo-style) sushi and the passion of a new generation of sushi artisans.
