This tiny, unassuming restaurant serves arguably the best sushi in the city. The interior comprises a sushi counter manned by a Japanese master working continuously and silently, and two small sunken tatami-style dining areas that evoke an old-time Tokyo restaurant. The seafood is flown in from Tokyo's Tsukiji fish market; the daily chef's selection (about Y280) is a wooden board of sushi made from the best catches of the day. Reservations are a must for this dinner-only Chaoyang gem. There are three locations around town.
