A chef from "Sushi Sho" offers a tranquil sushi dining experience

About a 3-minute walk from Ebisu Station sits "Takumi Sushi Owana," a sushi restaurant that offers a peaceful dining atmosphere along with expertly crafted food. The counter and ceiling are made from Japanese cypress wood, and the lighting inside is bright and cheerful, which makes for a crisp, immaculate dining space.

"Takumi Sushi Owana" is run by Chef Kenji Oana, who spent over 10 years perfecting his skills at "Sushi Sho," a venerable establishment that has produced countless numbers of well-regarded sushi chefs. From there Chef Oana moved on to open up his current restaurant in 2017. Chef Nakazawa, who was in charge of his apprenticeship back when he was still training, used to tell him to press on even when things get tough. Chef Oana took this to heart and pushed himself to excel each and every day. Even when he was neck-deep in kitchen work, he made sure to take things one step at a time and push little by little to take his culinary skills further each day.

As you would expect from Chef Oana's years of training, he is nothing less than meticulous when it comes to procuring ingredients. Rather than rely on wholesale companies doing the work for him, he checks over all of his ingredients firsthand to make sure everything meets his strict quality standards. The vinegar used in his sushi rice is either Japanese akazu(red vinegar) or white vinegar depending on what type of sushi it is, and he adjusts the acidity to match the right level needed to compensate for the temperature outside each day. For the sushi rice itself he uses specially selected sushi-grade rice produced in Miyagi called "Gin-bozu Ichizoku." And when it comes to Japanese sake he typically stocks 12 to 13 different bottles at a time. He seeks out local brands from his home in Shizuoka, including "Eikun" and "Kikuyoi". And during his time training as a chef, he picked up a fondness for "Suzuden," a Japanese sake brewer that was first founded in 1850. In addition to drinks, he also showcases his talents for culinary arrangements in his chef's choice omakase courses, which include a la carte dishes that are smoked with bits of cherry blossom wood and straw.

The seating inside features 8 seats at the counter and a single completely private room with 6 seats in total. Chef Oana made sure to include private room seating since fine dining establishments often make it impossible for families to bring their children along. "Takumi Sushi Owana" offers a relaxed and natural dining space that is perfect for not just receptions and other group dining occasions, but for couples and families with children as well. The interior is calm and composed with a friendly ambiance all throughout, which means guests can enjoy their meal in a perfectly relaxed setting. "Takumi Sushi Owana" offers guests an elegant dining atmosphere to savor and enjoy meticulously crafted sushi.
