Name: Hamacho Sushi
Location: D5 on our town map, next door to Wanryu and The Corner Steakhouse. 50 metres down the road opposite the alcohol shop.
Type of Restaurant: Sushi and Sushimi
The Plug: Sushi, what usually comes to mind when one thinks of Japanese cuisine. There is far more to Japanese food than Sushi, but a trip to Japan would just not be complete without it. Hamacho (not to be confused with Himecho, a karaoke bar which we’ll discuss on another ocassion) does some of the best Sushi and Sushimi, with a chef who takes a great deal of pride in his work. He’s always smiling and will do his best to have a chat in Japanese/English. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, offering both bar seating and Tatami mat seating. The restaurant is fairly small and doesn’t take bookings, so it’s best to pick a quieter day.
House Specialty: Sitting at the bar to see him preparing the Sushi! you can’t go wrong with any of the dishes.
Average Price of a meal: ¥1500
