Sushi / Conveyor Belt Sushi Spots in Ishikawa Area

  • Janome Zushi (flagship store)
    Gourmet / Alcohol
    Ishikawa Pref. Kanazawashi Katamachi 1-1-12
    Janome Zushi is a long-established sushi restaurant in Kanazawa City, Ishikawa Prefecture that has been operating since around 1930. Besides providing fresh seafood toppings, Janome Zushi also takes great pains over the “Shari” rice used to make the sushi; a blend of rice varieties grown locally in Ishikawa Prefecture is cooked using underground water from Mt. Haku, creating a delicious flavor and ensuring that the rice does not become unpleasantly hard even when it cools down. The Kutani-ware tableware used at Janome Zushi is very attractive to look at, too. The Janome Zushi flagship store is located close to the Kenroku-en garden and the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art; this tranquil restaurant near a bustling area is a great place to stop by, whether you are in Kanazawa as a tourist or on business.

    Ishikawa Pref. Hakuigunshikamachi Saikaifuto W 6 6 Saikai fishing port premises
    A sushi restaurant located on the grounds of the Saikai Fishing Harbor. The restaurant's name indicates it is a conveyor belt sushi place, but in place of an unending conveyor belt of sushi rolling past, customers make an order via a touch panel at their table, after which a sushi chef quickly prepares their order. Directly operated by a fisherman's union, the restaurant uses fresh seafood caught and brought into port that day. Only salmon and mackerel caught in the waters off Saikai, in particular, are used, no imports. The restaurant's menu also includes many distinctly local sushi toppings such as thread-sail filefish, whelk, and neon flying squid.

    月一ぐらいで行きますが、土日のお昼時は忙し過ぎてイライラするからか店長さんが従業員を怒りっぱなしです。 小声で言ってるつもりでしょうけど、丸聞こえで気分が悪いです。 お寿司は本当に美味しいので、非常に残念です。 店長さんの八つ当たりにしか見えません。 店長さんのいない平日は穏やかでとてもいいお店ですよ。

The restaurant is located between the Kenrokuen and the Higashi/Kazue-machi Chaya District, making it easy to stop by after exploring the town.

    "Located in the Omi-cho Market, this sushi restaurant is the sister establishment to Sushi Mitsukawa, a restaurant located in the Higashi Chaya District which has been awarded a Michelin star. Here you can enjoy authentic sushi in a casual atmosphere, and, from the counter seats, you can observe the superb skills of master sushi chefs. The restaurant also has table seating, ensuring families and small groups can also eat comfortably here. In addition to a la carte orders prepared one at a time using your favorite toppings, the restaurant also offers lunch specials and an omakase (chef's choice) course prepared with fresh, seasonal seafood focusing on whitefish varieties. The restaurant particularly recommends the ""Ni-Hamaguri,"" common orient clam simmered in a salty-sweet sauce Tokyo-style; and the ""Akanishigai,"" sushi made with veined rapa whelk which can only be obtained from the fishing port in Nanao City in the Noto area."

    久しぶりに行った近江市場、市場は海外からの観光客が大半でした。 市場の値段も全体的に高くなったように感じます。 楽しみにしていたお寿司はぺらぺらのネタ、こちらのシャリは私は苦手かな。 そして上から目線の愛想の無い女性のお運びさん、、 リピはありません。

    "A sushi restaurant located next to the Gansho-ji Temple. Situated in a back alley, this renowned restaurant has even been featured in the media. Close to Nanao Station, the restaurant sometimes sees lines forming out the door during lunchtime. The restaurant's sushi toppings come straight from fixed shore nets. The menu is the same for both lunch and dinner. In addition to choices like the ""Osusume Nigiri 8-kan"" recommended eight-piece sushi set, the ""Taisho Tokusei Saba Battera"" pressed mackerel sushi, and the ""Kaisen Hitsumabushi"" chopped seafood over rice, the restaurant also offers all manner of makizushi rolls, sashimi, and tempura assortments. The steamed northern shrimp sushi is popular with women. The weekday lunch special is particularly recommended. A bargain choice, it comes with two small side bowl dishes, salad, miso soup, and your choice of either eight nigirizushi pieces or a seafood rice bowl."
