Sushi with a delicate balance of flavor created by red vinegar which has been used since the Edo period.
Chef Iwamoto is an accomplished sushi chef with over 30 years of experience.
After training in the way of sushi and a la carte dishes in Osaka and Kyoto Gion, Chef Iwamoto opened Sushi Kaiko in September 2023.
Red vinegar is used in the sushi rice, a historic type of vinegar which has been used since the late Edo period. The shari is firm and made in a size small enough for even female guests to finish in one bite, allowing guests to comfortably and slowly savor its flavors on the palate and to also feel the Chef’s passion for achieving the perfect harmony between the shari and the toppings.
Chef Iwamoto passionately states, “Sushi, unlike other Japanese dishes, allows us to taste the neta and shari, its aromas and flavors, one after the other in quick combination. It enables us to pursue and appreciate the finer aspects and to notice even the smallest of changes. I truly hope that sushi lovers have a chance to taste my sushi.”
The name “Kaiko” means “encounter” or “meeting.” The concept of the restaurant is the encounter between people and the delicious sushi created there.
The calligraphy of Kaiko’s kanji logo was brushed by Master Ogino Tansetsu who is famous worldwide for drawing the logo of the Japanese whisky “Hibiki” and others masterpieces.
