A 8-counterseats sushi restaurant in Ginza 8-chome that serves finest sushi.
A top-notch sushi restaurant that is located in Ginza 8-chome that is away from the noise of the city. There is only 8 seats in Sushi Satake. It is an authentic Edomae-style sushi restaurant that uses Kyo yaki dishes from "Miyukyo Kitagawa". The restaurant is named after chef Satake. Before opening his own sushi restaurant, chef Satake has worked as a manager in Sushiden and Sushi Kenzan, and finished training at Kyubei. The chef has developed his unique taste by training.
Two different kind of red vinegar is used to match with the rice "Tsuyahime" from Yamagata Prefecture and the fish is purchased from the market everyday. The steam from the rice while making the sushi is suprisingly from the tuna. The warm rice incredibly matches with the raw fish. After the temperature of rice gets down the naturally, it'll match with silver-skinned fish such as horse mackerel. When the tempurature of the rice matches with the fishes, it is suprisingly too good. The sushi roll used by the seaweed from Yoshida shop is full of flavor.
The interior is simple and clean, with 8 limited counter-seat. The counter seat made of one single board from the sacred tree from Mitsumine Shrine, where the sushi is placed on. The recommended course is the omakase with 15 nigiri which you can enjoy with Japanese sake, shochu, or wine. When the chef meets the customers, he felt like "This is the right life I chose". Moreover, when customers spent time with their friends or anniversaries, he felt like he is sharing something in common with them. Please enjoy the warm welcome from the chef.
