Fodor's Expert Review Masazushi
In the middle of Otaru's famous strip of sushi restaurants, Masazushi serves up the morning's catch of herring, tuna, abalone, salmon, and more perched on quality vinegared rice. The staff will check your wasabi horseradish tolerance levels when taking your order. A good, quick lunch is the basic10-piece-and-soup hamanasu set (¥1,580). The restaurant is quiet and removed from the day-tripper crowds, and in the evening it's where local business leaders hold court in private rooms. There are English menus.
