This will be the last shot on the blog for a while as I take a short break over the holiday season. Wishing you all the best for the holidays and for the New Year!

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

A very mysterious mood with the door open to the dark room behind. Very good!

the sushi master is a funny and welcoming guy. I went there in may this year. I'm the first french who tried this place.

The sushi are BIG and absolutly delicious ! The best I've ever ate.

Tell me if you tried it. I'd like to read your comment about this restaurant. I'll try to go there one more time in April next year.

Say hello to the Sushi Master !

A beautiful shot Daryl. I went into a similar place in Saijo when they were handing out samples. The sake was so potent that it took me by surprise.
