    This trout sushi specialty shop a two-minute walk from Toyama Chihou Railway Kencho-mae or Marunouchi stations is obsessed with creating trout sushi with a rich, fully-bodied flavor.

This is combined with rice grown in Toyama Prefecture, which is pressed slightly stronger than usual to give the sushi a resilient texture. In addition to traditional trout sushi, the shop also offers extra-special trout sushi with even thicker cuts of trout, as well as trout sushi that can substitute for a wedding cake.
