“Foreigners not welcomed”
I tried on Sep 16th to make a reservation via a fee-based concierge firm in Japan but was told this restaurant, quote "does not take reservations from foreigners." This is a prepaid via credit card (for full cost of menu chosen) concierge service firm. Thus, no risk of reservation made but no show. ...Why is such a highly-rated restaurant so unwelcome/unwilling to serving patrons from foreign lands? HHFUN

“Awesome sushi! ”
We went for two nights and the place was fully booked :( However, we discovered that they do takeaways :) managed to have a delicious meal of sushi for the next two nights we were in Asahikawa. Very fresh sushi and amazing value. Definitely a must try when in Asahikawa, just have to make reservatio...ns way in advance :)

Sushi here is just delicious. No more words need. If you like sushi, that's the address you should go and try.

“Very good sushi - One Michelin star..”
Apparently this is rated 1 Michelin star. At least one staff here speak English - according to the Tourist Information. I rang up 2 weeks prior but they were fully booked. Our hotel managed to get us a last minute private room. I suppose the best part about sushi restaurants in Japan is sitting at t...he counter watching the chef at work but a room was just as good for us. As we didn't know that the Omakase/Kaiseki meal had to be booked a day in advance, we went for their set sushi menus, which was really good. The recommended set for sushi was below 5,000 yen for 15 pieces (if my poor memory serves me correctly). We didn't give this a 5 star rating, although my partner loved this place, because the fish slices were a tad on the small side IMHO. But it was very fresh, nevertheless. We ordered the conger eel soup and another white fish soup in addition, which was also very good (which led us to believe perhaps their Omakase would be just as good). We also had a cold sake from Otokoyama and it was interesting that they let you pick a cup of your choice to use for the sake. Overall, it was a pleasant experience. While we were there, we only saw Japanese patrons, which was exactly what we were hoping for. We would consider this a slightly off the beaten track experience and excellent value for sushi of that quality. It's located within walking distance (about 10 minutes max) to the train station.
