Sushi Sakai opens its doors in Nishi-Nakasu, an area known to be a very high class in Fukuoka city. Many fans visit this popular restaurant from near and far, and it is the place to go in Fukuoka for authentic Edo-mae style sushi.

Restaurant owner Daigo Sakai trained for 3 years at a sushi restaurant, after which he moved to Tokyo and trained for 7 years at two-star restaurant Sushi Umi. In 2013 he became independent and opened Sushi Sakai, and earned one star in 2014 and 3 stars in 2019. The menu is “omakase(Chef's choice) course” only, with about 6 otsumami (small dish) and about 12 nigiri sushi.

For the ingredients, they use fresh fish caught in the outskirts, and high-grade seafood from all over the country which was caught and transported by air on the same day. “Blowfish sashimi with liver sauce”, served only between October and March, is a very popular otsumami dish. With recommended sushi like the “Pickled Akami”, a small nigiri that is slightly dyed red from the red vinegar used, you can always enjoy a continuously evolving Edo-mae style sushi here.

The restaurant has 11 counter seats and 2 private rooms for 2~6 guests, and the interior is based on a design using Kyoto Kitayama cedar by Shinji Maeda, the foremost figure of traditional Sukiya architecture.

You can enjoy your meal in a relaxing and calm atmosphere, whether it be during a business dinner, date, family event, or a wide range of scenes. We would like you to come and experience a taste and atmosphere that you can only find here at Sushi Sakai.
