Membership-only sushi establishment “Sushi AKA” is where famed Chef Isao Yoshikawa, a pioneer who has been dedicated to Edomae-style sushi for over 60 years and the first to introduce “aburi-zushi” (flame-seared sushi) in Tsukiji, creates sushi. Sushi craftsmen from all over the country come here to learn sushi under the legend and for the opportunity to experience the essence of Edomae-style sushi.

For the sushi vinegar, Chef Yoshikawa uses “Yokoi Brewery’s Akazu”, a famous vinegar which is also commonly used in Michelin-starred restaurants, and is also difficult to procure for new entrants. He uses Yokoi’s red vinegar to give the rice a unique and profound depth. He also utilizes a personal network he has built up over his lifetime between Tsukiji and Toyosu, to procure the best ingredients for his neta.

Guests can enjoy traditional Edomae-style sushi while also experiencing innovation and fun new ideas. “Ura Dragon Ball Roll,” a thick sushi roll made with fatty tuna, sea urchin, and egg yolk, is a popular item both domestically and internationally. You can enjoy a “playfulness of the professional” which is conscious of the “Instagram-worthy” trends of this social media age, and which has established a fine balance between tradition and creativity.

Please come and enjoy authentic Edomae-style sushi made by a true heavyweight in the sushi industry up-close at Sushi AKA’s counter.
