Not the first time at this place and for sure not the last. The sushi is the best you can get. Beats all other places I've been too.

After searching our travel apps for recommended places to eat around Ishigaki, my wife and I both realized that this restaurant was rated #1 across the board. That definitely held its own weight in our decision to check it out. We were VERY lucky to be squeezed in between reservations on a Friday night by providing our contact info after... More

The best sashimi in Ishigaki. But if you are coming from other region in Japan, don't worry if you miss, as you can certainly find this class of restaurant elsewhere, but it is just rare in Ishigaki. It is hard to book. If you call to make reservation, the phone won't go thru 90% of the time (not sure if... More

spent 4 nights in Ishigaki and was able to get a reservation on the 3rd night at 5pm after cutting my day trip to Hateruma short. The food was out of this world. Best $100 spent on sushi during the trip. We ordered the 2 person sashimi plate, sushi plate, fried banana fish, blue fin tuna sushi was a huge... More

Went the day after our anniversary for a meal. It was amazing. The quality of fish was quite good. The Ika (squid) sashimi I and my partner (who is Japanese) thought was the best we had ever tasted. Squid is a seafood speciality here on the island. The umi budou (sea grapes) with tamago (egg) and meguro (tuna) nigiri was... More

Food is amazing they made us salmon sashimi even though not on the menu, there is a English menu as the waitresses speak a little English- we booked through out hotel in advance and when we left there was a line up to get in.

Loved this restaurant. Had our hotel call to reserve and they said they were full for the duration of our trip. We went anyway to see if there were any no-shows. There was no room but they let us reserve for two days later at 5pm, and it was definitely worth the wait and the early dinner. We left completely... More

My friend visited the restaurant few days ago but too full to get in, so she booked a table for dinner few days later. We ordered Uni and Tuna sushi. The tuna 大トロis the best one that I highly recommend everyone should try it! The beef fried rice is a bit salty that we can't finish it. I drive there... More

Came here without reservation. They did not have any seats, so we made a reservation for a few days later. It seems to be very popular among tourists and locals. Fortunately, when we left, they suddenly had some spots free and the woman looking after us, came running, so we eventually had a seat. So props for the services! The... More
