We booked this restaurant a month before our visit because my brother advised us. In fact, we visited here for lunch on weekdays,but all tables are reserved. Some reviewers weren't satisfied with the staff's attitude and service, but they are nice and explain about sushi...More

When I did research for my trip to Otaru, I found out Isezushi was (and I guess still is) the most highly rated sushiya there at the authoritative foodie website Tabelog. I very much looked forward to my dinner there and my expectations were met....More

Ordered the medium size tasting which came with 16 pieces. The chef prepares all sushi lightly seasoned to bring out the flavor of the fish. Well, you can't beat that! For 1 star Michelin, it is very good value. The restaurant is small, seating no...More

We stopped in Otaru as part of a Celebrity Cruise and I had booked us a ricksaw ride to start the day. As the ride was scheduled to end around lunch, I asked the company for recommendations for sushi and this was their #1 suggestion....More

A bit difficult to find this place without maps. Again. Similar to other restaurant here, the signage in Kanji and no window to look inside the restaurant. I barely can recognize its store front, if not seeing from Trip Advisor member's photo. We order 1...More

You can't make a reservation online. If you'd like to book, you have to make a call. I'm not sure whether there is a staff who can speak English or not. It could be hard to make a reservation for dinner on weekend so you... More
