4.6 (152) $$$$ $$$$ Sushi


Summary: A quiet six-seat sushi sanctuary.

Sawada stands as a beacon of sushi excellence in the heart of the city, inviting just six guests at a time to savor its revered hon maguro, uni, and aburi maguro. The Sawada team, a husband-and-wife duo, meticulously prepares each dish, ensuring the rice—seasoned with komesu and salt—is the ideal companion for sake. This tranquil nook, where calm and punctuality are paramount, forbids photography, allowing diners to immerse fully in the artistry before them. Koji Sawada's passion for Edomae sushi techniques shines through in his expertly crafted nigiri, complemented by his wife's unwavering support and the perfectly brewed tea that concludes the meal. As the bell tolls in Ginza, Sawada's intimate counter becomes a stage for a gastronomic performance rooted in tradition and dedication.
