28 year old Takao Ishiyama is the new darling of bloggers, instagramers and Tokyo sushi connaisseurs. His 8 seat sushi shop in Ginza is called Sushi-ya, which literally means “sushi shop” in Japanese. Apparently Ishiyama-san used to work at Kanesaka and Saito, thus you can experience the same sushi making style throughout the omakase.
Striving for excellence can be felt everywhere,starting from the perfectly seasoned rice and top notch neta, finishing with the impressive skills of Ishiyama-san. I am not going to elaborate too much on the meal, just that the visit to Sushi-ya was a great revelation and would probably make to my 5 top sushi experiences in Tokyo.
P.S. Please read a brilliant post on sushi in Japan by “kayoubidesu”. Very useful and informative, especially if you are acquainted with Tokyo sushi world.
