Have you ever wondered how the locals have sushi? One way is standing up...and your sushi is served on a leaf...not a plate...how cool is that? We were like kids in a sweets shop...as soon as we were handed the menu, we basically ordered everything on the menu....as soon as the sushi chef placed the finished sushi on a leaf in front of us, it was gone within a split second....the food was too delicious to wait....the chef was also very friendly, despite the language barrier.

Being the foodies that we were, we also walked down the long glass window displaying all the ingredients....just to make sure we had tried everything....we realised we hadn't tried the snail sushi, so we asked for that too....it was an interesting texture...but not really my cup of tea. What I loved about this place was the homely feeling, it was relatively small but very comfortable and welcoming. The ingredients were also very fresh, I read on a brochure that the restaurant was one of the few restaurants that have direct access to produce at the Tsukiji fish markets in Tokyo. A great place to try sushi how the locals eat it...standing up!
