Famous sushi restaurant with excellent access
On the fourth floor of Shibuya Mark City East Building, directly connected to Shibuya Station on the Tokyu Inokashira Line, is the Shibuya branch of Umegaoka Sushi no Midori, which has its main restaurant in Umegaoka, Setagaya-ku. The lively restaurant is always full of people and is a popular sushi restaurant that serves seasonal ingredients at reasonable prices. Because it is directly connected to the station and located in a commercial complex, there is sometimes a long wait, but it is worth the wait. The days of men sitting at the counter are over, and the greatest feature of this restaurant is that women can enjoy a full plate of sushi alone without being overbearing.
Serving seasonal ingredients and Japanese flavors
Although a sushi restaurant, the menu is rich in seasonal ingredients, and a la carte dishes centered on seafood are also popular. The diverse lineup includes salads with crab miso, which is rare for sushi restaurants, seafood steamed in a bowl, and turban shells in a jar. The convenient accessibility of the restaurant attracts many tourists from overseas, and in addition to sushi and seafood, it also offers chasoba (green tea noodle) and sea bream kabuto-yaki (grilled sea bream).
Exquisite sushi at reasonable prices
Of course, nigirizushi is a must when visiting a sushi restaurant. The restaurant offers nigiri-zushi events that vary with the season, and the prices are reasonable, ranging from 2,000 to 2,500 yen for a mini chawan-mushi (steamed rice in a bowl), bowls, and dessert. The price is reasonable, ranging from 2,000 to 2,500 yen, and it is one of the best parts of visiting Bitori. Even if you are prepared to pay a certain amount for a meal at a sushi restaurant and order a single dish, you may be surprised when you see the bill and say, “Wow, it’s that cheap? It’s no exaggeration to say that this is one of Mitori’s specialties.
Bitori is committed to “food safety. The high temperature and humidity of summer in Japan makes it particularly susceptible to food poisoning, which is important in Japan’s food culture where seafood is often eaten raw. In addition to purchasing the freshest seafood, the restaurant provides safe and secure food by meeting its own strict safety standards. They also focus on the physical condition of their staff, bacterial testing of their ingredients, and in the last few years, measuring radioactive materials, so that even tourists from overseas, who tend to be sensitive to radioactive materials, can feel safe.
Glad to see consideration for waiting times
Although this is a popular restaurant with a long waiting list, there are also many efforts to make the most of the time spent waiting. During business hours, you can enjoy shopping and other activities until it’s your turn to wait for your table. Waiting information can be checked on a dedicated website, so as long as you check it frequently, you can use the waiting time without having your turn skipped. If you want to enjoy the taste of Bitori in a relatively short time, it is recommended to visit for lunch a little later on weekends and holidays, or for dinner early, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m.
At home with authentic sushi
Take out is also popular for those who want to enjoy the taste of Mitori at home.
Take-out is also popular among those who want to enjoy the taste of Bitori at home. The menu may vary depending on the season, but it generally serves four to five people and ranges in price from 5,000 yen to 10,000 yen. Originally, some areas in Setagaya Ward also offered delivery service, and all of the restaurants have plenty of expertise in taking food out of the store. We hope that you will enjoy the seasonal flavors, beautifully arranged in special take-out containers, at home as well.
