Passionately prepared sushi that maintains two Michelin stars by taking on the spirit of previous owner

Umi, located in Minami Aoyama, is a sushi restaurant that continues to attract a large following of guests from both Japan and abroad while it firmly holds on to its two stars from Michelin Guide. Umi is about a 7-minute walk from the Tokyo Metro Ginza Line at Gaiemmae Station. At the young age of 30, Mr. Nakamura leads Umi as its 3rd generation successor by taking on the spirit and aspirations left behind by the previous owners. He offers guests a lively dining atmosphere along with his lighthearted demeanor.

As a talented young sushi chef with two stars from Michelin Guide, Mr. Nakamura is charismatic and humorous when it comes to crafting sushi, and he cherishes the idea that sushi preparation should emphasize "passion, rather than technique," which was the ethos of the restaurant's previous owners. Just like the generations that came before him, he maintains close connections to keep paths open to the finest ingredients available. This lets guests experience top class sushi when they dine at Umi. Guests are treated to a relaxed and charming dining experience with the chef's "omakase" course, which offers a handpicked pairing of nigiri sushi and side dishes, as well as a carefully selected brand of Japanese sake.

Inside there are 10 seats available at the counter, as well as tables with 8 seats total. The restaurant is well-suited to dinner parties and other events, and they warmly welcome guests from abroad with English-speaking staff on-site. And for guests looking to add an extra surprise for special events, they also have a sushi cake available by reservation. Umi keeps up with the traditions of its previous owners to make sure each and every guest leaves with a smile.
