    Nigata Pref. Nigatashi Chuou-ku Honchoudori 4-273
    A long-standing sushi restaurant situated along Honcho-dori Avenue in Chuo Ward, Niigata City, Niigata Prefecture. The shop was opened in the early Showa period by the first owner, who sought to bring Tokyo-style raw sushi to Niigata. Today, Sushi Yasu continues to preserve the traditional tastes and techniques of that time. The restaurant uses only fresh, natural ingredients in its sushi, including seasonal local fish. Popular menu items including the “kiwami,” a set of 10 pieces of sushi, dashi-maki-tamago rolled omelet, and bowl of soup, the lunch chirashi-zushi; and the homemade castella Tamago-yaki omelet—only a small number of which are offered each day. The restaurant only has eight counter seats and “koagari” raised tatami mat dining area with a single table. Sushi Yasu is popular not only with locals but also tourists from within the prefecture and beyond.

    Nigata Pref. Nigatashi Higashi-ku Shichiku 5-1-1
    This is a sushi restaurant founded in 1953, located in Nishi Ward, Niigata City, Niigata Prefecture. The owner, who trained firstly in a rice shop on his path to become a sushi chef, is of course more concerned with the rice base than most others. The rice base made from Niigata Prefecture grown Koshihikari rice and white granular sugar mixed with vinegar, brings out the taste of Niigata fresh local fish and creates an exquisite harmony of taste. The “kiwami lunch” of hand-formed, locally fished sea urchins is popular.

    美味しいです。ただ、新潟はレベル高いので、普通になってしまいます。よそから来た人にはもってこいではないでしょうか。
