This place serves sushi/sashimi. We came at lunch (during the day of Emperor's birthday). A sushi set of 8 pieces cost 3000 yen. The fish was okay but not more than this. The miso soup contained shrimps. After acknowledging some of us were allergic to...More

Janomezushi main restaurant, founded in 1931, is a very traditional Sushi restaurant in Kanazawa city. Sushi made with fresh local sea foods is served every day. Caution: Janomezushi is so famous and popular that you will have to wait long time without reserving.

By coincidence we found this small sushi restaurant. The sushi and sashimi were amazing and the service very friendly. The restaurant is the oldest sushi place in Kanazawa and was founded by the grandfather of current chef.

A small traditional sushi restaurant with counter seats only. High quality sushi (inevitably rather expensive) with friendly service: the manager stops for a chat despite her limited English. Regarding earlier TA reviews about dual pricing, I could see no difference in the prices on the...More

This is really the place to be if you want a quiet evening with your partner and enjoying an honest, fresh, tasty piece of sushi/sashimi. Restaurant goes way back in time and preserves its old fashioned style. Just about 10 cover seats, one sushi chef,...More

I should have read the previous TA review before I visited. Such a disappointing experience. We came because most of the popular sushi restaurants were fully booked already. And this place is recommended by the hotel. Quality of food were average. But the worst part...More

This place is recommended by very popular tourist guides. I ate there on Oct., 2014. At 8:30pm only one customer was sitting at the counter. I ordered sashimi and nigiri. The fish was absolutely disappointing: tuna was nearly black colored and salmon was brownish, taste...More
