About Ginza Sushi Aoki
My sushi can be described as difficult, but if I could venture to say, I think it is sushi created by the always fresh character of the neighborhood called “Ginza.”
I keep as a foundation the traditional Edomae techniques that I and my father before me arduously trained in and inherited. Upon this foundation, the ever-changing atmosphere of Ginza, conversations with food-loving guests, flavors I recall from my travels, these various components have become hints or sparks of inspiration, bestowing a unique identity upon the restaurant.
Our nishi-azabu location is even more experimental, collaborating with chefs to give birth to more and more original sushi, and finding great approval from our guests. However, I accept that through comments received and my own sense of taste, it will take time to weed out the best among these.
Katsuo or bonito (skipjack) swim far up north along with the Kuroshio current. They travel along the Japanese coast during the spring and summer, then return to the Pacific ocean in the fall. These returning bonito (modori-gatsuo) are fatty and flavorful, and just as tasty as maguro. We prepare the fish as sashimi, tataki sashimi (flash-grilled), and of course, as sushi.
Sushi alone can make a great meal.
Sake with otsumami, such as sashimi or grilled fish, can also make a great meal.
We have the honor of serving omakase, where our guests entrust us to create a course determined by the seasons and our own skill and experience, but if there are preferences for more or less wasabi, thickness of cuts of fish, another serving of something special, or otsumami to go with sake, please don’t hesitate to let us know at the counter.
Reservation strongly recommended.
Please read our reservation policy.
