“Sushi Sakamoto” is located in Sendagaya near the New National Stadium (to be completed in 2020), a 10-minute walk from JR Sendagaya Station in Tokyo. Owner-chef Jun Sakamoto makes Edomae-style sushi with the goal that "We want our customers to be impressed and grateful".
Chef Sakamoto joined the ANA Hotel in Sydney in 1999. He then spent the next 12 years gaining experience in Japanese cuisine and sushi in Australia. After returning to Japan, he trained for 6 years at a famous sushi restaurant in Hamamatsucho, Tokyo, and became independent in May 2019. He then opened “Sushi Sakamoto”, named after himself.
Born from Chef Sakamoto's idea that "I want you to enjoy sushi casually", the menu is not only an "Omakase Course" but also "Your Preference" a la carte. Sakamoto goes to the Toyosu market every morning and carefully selects ingredients with a keen eye. The Chef, who values mild flavors, recommends blue-blacked fishes. For example, Kohada, which is said to be the most characteristic ingredient of sushi restaurants, goes well with mild vinegared rice. The vinegared rice is made by mixing a blend of rice vinegar and chemical-free rice "Koshihikari" from Niigata Prefecture, which is specially made for “Sushi Sakamoto”, to white vinegared rice. There are always 4 kinds of sake that Chef Sakamoto carefully selects from all over Japan. The wine served is mainly French wine, champagne, rose champagne and white wine is also available. You can also bring your own alcoholic beverages if you inform the restaurant in advance.
The exterior stands out like a hideaway. To suit Chef Sakamoto's work, the L-shaped counter (9 seats) has two tiers. Please enjoy dining with your family, friends and colleagues at “Sushi Sakamoto”, surrounded by the warmth of wood. “Sushi Sakamoto” is where you can enjoy Edomae-style sushi that is carefully made and will surely be appreciated as a place to entertain overseas guests.
