A 1-star family-friendly and innovative Edomae-style sushi restaurant in Kita-Aoyama, led by an owner with two-star experience

Located in the sophisticated, newly redeveloped Kita-Aoyama neighborhood, a 1-star Sushi Masashi attracts diners who arrive for chef-owner Masashi Yamaguchi’s stunning Edomae-style sushi and innovative side dishes.

Yamaguchi, trained at the sushi restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton before serving as the head chef for the launch of Sushi Wakon at the Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto, leading the restaurant to one star. After that, he was appointed head chef of Sushi Wakon at The Peninsula Tokyo, becoming independent in June 2020.

The menu consists of a single multi-course meal, with superlative Edomae-style sushi and highly original side dishes. Yamaguchi's nigiri is characterized by its sharp and refreshing flavours, and the vinegared rice that melts in the mouth. A blend of rice vinegar and luxurious red vinegar creates richness and depth. In addition, the rounded rice grains of Gunma and Minakami rice, combined with Koshihikari rice of Yamagata, create a soft texture while retaining lightness.

The signature side dish is the tuna sukiyaki. Guests are frequently surprised at the originality of "sushi restaurant's TKG (rice with raw egg)" dish, which is made by adding vinegared rice to the remaining egg yolk after enjoying the sukiyaki.

For drinks pairings, Japanese sake is recommended. There are 8 kinds to match with the meal, from the slightly sweet AKABU Akatake from Iwate for appetizers, and the spicy Hitakami from Miyagi, which pairs beautifully to nigiri sushi. The owner introduces his recommendations as requested. The restaurant also offers French champagne and white wines that complement and elevate the flavor of the sushi.

Guests are seated at a 9-seat counter; the height of the cutting board is the same as the height of the table, where the aesthetics of the craftsman are on display to guests. In addition, there is a private room for 4 diners, for occasions where discretion is paramount.

Masashi is a rare sushi restaurant often used for business entertainment and dates, and guests can reserve the entire restaurant for lunch and can also be enjoyed even with small children.
