Omeshiagari-dokoro
(Place to enjoy Izuu products)

Have a seat and enjoy a freshly made sushi or two.

We have provided benches for our customers to enjoy our sushi.
It was the idea of the sixth family head to provide “a place where customers can casually enjoy a few pieces of sushi while waiting for their sushi gifts to be prepared.” Our customers can enjoy the vibrant taste of freshly prepared sushi, which can usually only be enjoyed at teahouses. Upon your request, you may order an assortment of different products according to your preference. Therefore, please contact us.

A guide to when to enjoy the sushi

The flavor of Sugata-zushi (whole-fish sushi) nurtured by time

The Sugata-zushi of “Izuu” changes flavor over time, as the umami of the kelp is transferred to the sushi, and the flavors of the kelp, fish, and rice are blended. Unlike Edomae-zushi (Tokyo-style sushi), where freshness is everything, the appeal of Kyoto Sugata-zushi lies in containing and dressing the freshness so that the trinity of flavors, helped by time, becomes concentrated. By enjoying the sushi on several occasions, you will be able to find your preferred level of curing. If you plan to travel distances with the sushi, please let us know, we will prepare the sushi according to when you plan to eat it.

【Sushi immediately after preparation】

The fish and rice will both still be tender, and you will be able to enjoy the distinct characteristics of the ingredients and a light aftertaste. Please enjoy the natural umami of the fish and the light fragrance of the kelp.
(Available at the Main Store and at demonstration sale sites)

【Sushi after 5 to 8 hours】

The umami of the kelp has transferred to the sushi and all the flavors have blended, and the sushi is beginning to take on the flavors of “early-ripened sushi (in the early stage of fermentation).” At this stage, the flesh of the fish has firmed due to the effects of the vinegar, and you will be able to enjoy some bite in the texture.

【Sushi after 12 hours to the following day】

Both the fish and rice have taken on a pleasing texture. Fat filled with the umami of the fish will have risen to the surface and you will be able to enjoy the unique flavors of “early-ripened sushi.” (Available in this condition, when our sushi is purchased outside of Kyoto, other than at demonstration sale sites, and when purchased from our online shop)
