Playful appetizers and elegant Michelin 1-star Edo-style sushi in Akasaka

Akasaka, Tokyo is a neighborhood with a strong international flavor, full of restaurants with all sorts of national cuisine. A short walk from the Tokyo Metro Akasaka Station, in a tranquil entranceway, is the Michelin 1-star "Sushi Matsumoto." The Owner-chef, Mizuho Matsumoto, trained for 10 years at "Ginza Kyubey" and after working first at "Kyubey" and then at "Sushi Kanesaka", opened a restaurant in Korea. After returning to Japan in 2017, "Sushi Matsumoto" was established.

Upon opening the hinoki door, guests are greeted with the refreshing sight of a counter made with Nara hinoki. What pulls you in are the simple Edo-style sushi courses with playful appetizers. The contrast between traditional Edo sushi and the playful spirit behind the original appetizers inspired by requests from regular customers and the boss's own ideas leaves a strong impression. Examples include the uni (sea urchin) and oval squid roll that allows guests to compare two types of uni (Aomori purple uni and Hokkaido bafun uni) and fried kisu (Japanese whiting) with cream cheese and shuto (pickled bonito roe) - just a few of the many options brimming with originality just waiting to ensnare guests. The fatty tuna lined with the special house salt is also a great choice. Alcohol options include shochu from Kagoshima, seasonal Japanese sake such as Shichinen from Yamanashi, wine, and more - providing guests with a wide selection to choose from.

The clean-feeling interior has a counter that seats 8 and a private room for up to 4. The boss - whose attitude is "the customer makes the restaurant," has a special sense of hospitality that makes "Sushi Matsumoto" a comfortable place to dine for everything from receptions or business dinners to dates and fun with friends and family. This is a place to let loose and allow yourself to fall into the world of Edo-style sushi.

    昼に4名で伺いました。最初のしじみ汁からつまみ、握りまでところどころに創意工夫が感じられ本当に素晴らしい時間を過ごす事ができました。店内は明るく清潔感があり赤坂という土地柄、接待などにも非常に重宝しそうな落ち着いた雰囲気。また、白子の天ぷらを酒盗とクリームチーズで頂くものや、うにをイカに巻いて2種類食べ比べができたりお酒好きな人にはたまらない一品ばかりで非常に印象的でした。握りはシンプルな中にもところどころ変化を感じる大将ならではの握りでこちらも満足致しました。また、必ず訪れたいレストランです。

    お食事はすべてが美味しく、口に含む度に感動いたしました。 店内の照明は明るく、清潔感もあって、器ひとつひとつにも拘りとセンスを感じました。 コースはとてもボリュームがあり、男性が満足できる量で提供されています。 ご主人の距離感もさすがで、出ず入らずの接客をしていただき心地よかったです。
