Assorted sushi

Asakusa Umaimon Azuma is a great sushi restaurant in the Asakusa district of Tokyo.  This was my second time eating here.  Today I tried the assorted sushi.  Came with fatty tuna, tuna, crab, shrimp, salmon roe, tamago and sea urchin (uni). Great meal deserved with a clear soup.  We also sat upstairs this time in tatami seating.  Sushi was well made.  Rice seasoned nicely and the fish stayed on the rice. Tasted even better being washed back with a couple of Schiller bottles of Hakaissan sake. Service was good as our server spoke pretty good English and we didn’t have to wait long for our food. 


This is my second time back here and I highly recommend this restaurant.

Asakusa

We visited Asakusa today. It has a shrine and a series of streets lined with shops and millions of places to shop for souvenirs.

We started looking around for a place to eat and found the same place Deniz had eaten at on her first trip to Japan. She had no idea how to find it again, it was just pure luck.  It’s called Asakusa Umaimon Azuma.  Great place!!  Deniz had “Salmon Don”.

I had “Jo Chirashi”, which is a chef’s selection of sashimi and tamago (egg) on sushi rice.

Both our dishes came with clear soup that had a Sakura flower in it.

I took this picture of Asakusa Umaimon Azuma on our way out.
