Sushi Kinoshita is nestled away in a quiet suite of an apartment building in Nishi-Azabu, Tokyo, and is truly a grown-up’s hideaway, yet one which is frequented daily by sushi connoisseurs.

After ringing the intercom at the entrance of the building and ascending to the 2nd floor, guests are greeted by the ambiance of a contemporary sushi establishment.

Chef Noriaki Nakamura, who honed his skills at renowned Michelin 3-star establishments such as Kyoto Kitcho Arashiyama Honten and Ginza Sushi Yoshitake, meticulously crafts sushi with dedication as the master of Sushi Kinoshita.

While Japanese cuisine emphasizes drawing out the individual flavors of each of its ingredients, contrarily, a serving of sushi is an experience which is concluded in a single bite.

“The balance of the shari (rice) with the topping is crucial with Sushi” says Chef Nakamura.

His Omakase course is composed of 10 to 12 contemporary Japanese cuisine dishes and 11 to 13 pieces of nigiri. It is divided into half “Japanese cuisine dishes” and half “nigiri,” showcasing the beauty of both types of cuisines equally.

As for his selection of Japanese sake, Chef Nakamura places the highest importance on whether it truly complements the sushi rather than its price. He studied hospitality, service and alcohol pairing at the renowned French restaurant Chez Inno in Kyobashi, and thoroughly thinks about how to achieve the perfect balance between food and drink based on this experience.

Despite possessing all the exceptional skills and the criteria of a top sushi establishment, Sushi Kinoshita deviates from a formal style, aiming for a more relaxed atmosphere in which people can enjoy sushi. There is no doubt that Sushi Kinoshita is a restaurant worth experiencing and one which offers sushi with undeniable value.
