It is located 3-minute walk from Ginza station, near "Corridor Gai" with its array of restaurants beneath the railway overpass between Yurakucho and Shimbashi Stations. The chef here, Hisayoshi Iwa, trained for 3 years at well-known sushi establishments in Ginza, and refined his skills for a further 13 years at "Sushi Kanesaka," the renowned Ginza sushi restaurant, before opening his own Michelin 1-star restaurant, "Ginza Iwa". He opened "Ginza Iwa 815" in 2018.
All of the seafood of "Ginza Iwa 815" is purchased fresh and in season from Toyosu(ex-Tsukiji) market. He uses the finest quality wasabi brought in directly from Shizuoka, one of Japan's most famous wasabi production areas. His Sumeshi(vinegared rice) is an exclusive blend of Koshihikari rice grown by trusted farmers in Abiko in Chiba Prefecture and red vinegar. The restaurant's overall specialty is traditionally made Edomae sushi featuring the highest quality seasonal seafood. Each dish is a once in a lifetime encounter, only to be experienced at that particular moment in time on that particular day. To accompany the food, Iwa-san regularly serves at least 10 kinds of carefully selected champagnes, wine and Japanese sake to cater to his customers' tastes and preferences.
Inside the restaurant is a counter for 11 people made from the wood of cherry blossom trees, and a private room that can be used by up to five people. The sushi is served on Bizen-yaki dishes, one of the "Six Ancient Kilns of Japan" (Nihonrokkoyō). It is said that no single piece of Bizenware is the same, so these dishes suit Iwa-san's sushi perfectly. This is an ideal venue for a date, a special anniversary or for entertaining. Anyone can enjoy this innovative style of sushi. Everyone will feel welcome here, young and old, men and women, whatever their nationality. It is a place to come with your favorite eating partners and guests.
