“Sushimichi Sakurada” is located 7-minute’s walk from Hisayaodori Subway Station in Nagoya City, Aichi Prefecture, a little off the main street. The owner Yuto Ohta serves Nagoya-style sushi with love for all local the ingredients used.
Owner-chef Ohta is from Aichi Prefecture. He set his sights on becoming a sushi chef early on, and after graduating from high school, he trained at famous restaurants such as “Ginza Kyubei” and “Sushi Tokami”. He then returned to Nagoya and opened his own restaurant, “Sushimichi Sakurada” in March 2019.
Ohta-san’s nigiri is Nagoyamae-style sushi that uses plenty of local ingredients while preserving the tradition of Edomae-style sushi that he acquired during his training. Seafood is carefully selected not only from the local area but also from the markets of Toyosu, Fukuoka, Kanazawa and other places in Japan. The tuna is from the specialty wholesaler "Yamayuki" whom he has had a connection with since his training period in “Sushi Tokami”. A unique blend of 3 types of red vinegar from Aichi, Gifu and Mie are used. The rice is from Toyohashi, Aichi Prefecture. The wasabi is from Ogaki City, Gifu Prefecture. The spring water from where the wasabi is grown is used to cook rice and tea. Nori seaweed is specially ordered from Ariake, Kumamoto. It is twice as thick as normal seaweed and is a rare item that is only sold by 3 stores in the world. Nagoya Cochin brand eggs are used for the final tamagoyaki. Careful attention is paid to each ingredient in every detail.
The recommended alcohol is the wine selected by Ohta-san, who is also a sommelier, and there are over 80 kinds of wine from all over the world, including French, Italian, Japanese and New World wines. They also have around 10 types of by-the-glass options, so you can enjoy various wines depending on the dish. There are always around 40 kinds of sake from all over Japan available at the restaurant.
The cypress counter (9 seats), inherited from “Sushi Yoshino”, is an eye-catching piece. We hope you will enjoy the lively feel of Ohta-san’s Nagoyamae-style sushi, starting with the "Shari-giri" (rice mixing), for dinner parties with your family or colleagues, for gatherings with your sushi-loving friends, and for entertaining overseas guests.
