A Treasury of Fresh Seafood in Toyama

Sushi Nanba: a Michelin 1-star restaurant in a quiet neighborhood near Toyama City's business district just 20 minutes by car from Toyama Airport. The"Sushi Namba" is a Michelin 1-star sushi restaurant in a quiet neighborhood near Toyama City's business district just 20 minutes by car from Toyama Airport. The owner - Kaoru Namba - opened this restaurant in 1996 after training at places such as "Uenozushi" of Hiroshima and "Sushiei" of Toyama.

Sushi of "Sushi Namba" are made guest by guest, with ingredients and style that match each person. For example, local customers might receive rare fish sourced from as far as the Tsukiji fish market, whereas guests from outside Toyama may receive fresh fish unique to the Toyama region. Each guest is presented with sushi that best matches them in a way that is practically bespoke. The rice is directly sourced from farmers in Toyama, and the vinegar used is a blend of rice vinegar and brewed vinegar. As the vinegar is gentle and mild, the natural sweetness of the rice itself comes through without adding any sugar. The nigiri is a little larger than Edomae-style, and the low sourness and saltiness yields a light flavor. The alcohol on offer is primarily Japanese sake. Aside from 'Hiroki' from Fukushima Prefecture and 'Jikon' from Mie Prefecture, local sake such as 'Kachikoma' and 'Haneya' are also available, with the selection being carefully selected from all over the country to match the season perfectly.

With a small, unassuming sign out front, the interior of "Sushi Namba" is only 10 counter seats and a private tatami room for up to 8 people. The location - a slight distance away from the business district - is steeped in the owner's desire "to be a sushi restaurant that guests will go out of their way to visit with friends on special occasions." "Sushi has the power to excite people." In so saying, the owner hopes for people to enjoy sushi with special people on special and commemorative days.
