Noike is near the Sendagi Metro Station. The restaurant resembles a traditional Japanese house. On the first floor, there are counter seats from which you can see the sushi chefs at work and on the second floor, there is a traditional tatami mat room. What you should definitely try here is the "edomae anago" (salt water eel prepared in the Tokyo-style) sushi. This excellent sushi shop is surprisingly reasonably priced. Expect to pay from 2,000 to 3,000 yen.

Genkai Zushi

This restaurant is located near the JR Nishi-Nippori Station. There are some counter seats, some regular table seats and some tatami seats for those of you who would like to sit on the floor Japanese-style.

In the evening, you can order assortment platters of sushi from 1,050 to 4,900 yen. Try the 2,900 yen one and you'll have plenty!

Matsu Sushi

Matsu Sushi was established in 1940 and is currently run in part by the family's third generation of sushi chefs. It is located near the Sendagi Metro Station.

You can order a-la-carte or have a lunch assortment special for 3,000 yen or an o-makase course (chef's choice) at night for 6,000 yen. Opened only from Friday to Sunday.
