Enjoy traditional and modern sushi that stimulates the five senses

Ginza, Tokyo is not only a gourmet town but a battleground of sushi restaurants. Located just a few minutes walk from Ginza Station, “Sushi Takaya” (formerly Sushi Kutani) is a sushi restaurant whose theme is “nigiri sushi” (small balls of sushi rice topped with raw fish), using seasonal ingredients sourced from all over Japan. You can also enjoy alcohol pairing with carefully-selected wines and Japanese sake from their sommelier.

Head Chef Takahashi Takayuki, who succeeded from the former head chef and has been working for 10 years, exquisitely combines tradition and modern taste. Mr. Takayuki is fluent in English and has an international background, having gained experience in the western food section of hotels, Japanese restaurants, and sushi restaurants, and was awarded the best restaurant for six consecutive years as the Head Chef of a Japanese restaurant in the Philippines. “Sushi Takaya” has a good reputation among international guests, as a place to relax and enjoy sushi. The ingredients are carefully-selected fresh, seasonal ingredients from all over the country and the omakase course includes side dishes and nigiri made with dedication. The vinegared rice used for the nigiri is made from 2-year old rice harvested at the foot of the Shirakami Mountains, a World Heritage Site, along with red vinegar that has been aged for 7 years. The nutritious taste of light brown color accentuates the attractiveness of seasonal ingredients. At lunchtime, you can easily enjoy sushi and chirashizushi, as well as the chef’s omakase dinner course. In addition, the alcohol pairing suggested by the sommelier allows you to enjoy the amazing combination of wines from all over the world, as well as a reliable combination of seasonal sake with a sense of satisfaction.

The interior, which was renovated in May 2017, is a modern Japanese-style space created by a famous designer. You can enjoy a different atmosphere compared to the traditional sushi restaurant, where, in this unique space, the traditional and modern-day blends together, reflected in the artworks that give you a sense of Japan’s four seasons. The restaurant also has counter seats, table seats and private tatami rooms, and can accommodate a wide range of occasions, such as business entertainment, anniversaries and family gatherings. It is a new type of sushi restaurant where you can enjoy Japanese tradition, modern taste and harmony of the “five senses.”
