Edomae sushi in Ginza

It is said that if you are gastronome, you would not eat sushi on the weekend. Fish markets are opened only in weekdays and stocks are served on the weekend. Saturday might be ok, but Sunday...Actually many sushi restaurants are closed on Sunday. Even so, I sometimes want to taste sushi on Sunday. In such occasion, "Ginza Seamon(銀座 鰤門)" can be a good option. Seamon is opened for 7 days.

Seamon is located on the 6th floor of a building in the center of Ginza(in this building, there are also other famous tempura and French restaurants). Their long red-lacquer counter is spectacular. All sushi chefs are skin head putting kimono! The atmosphere is like a stylish zen-temple. But don't worry, they are friendly and talkative if we ask.

Also, you don't have to worry at all having sushi on Sunday here. All ingredients are very well managed and kept fresh. Some of the fishes are aging whose taste is changed much better. Their sushi rice is unique because of a bit strong vinegar. The balance with fishes was very adequate. Sharp sushis. The portion is not so big that we can continue eating. 

Set meal is available from JPY3,500 at lunch and JPY8,000 at night. My rating is 4 out of 5. Gochiso-samadeshita!
