Gion Sushi Tadayasu

Gion Sushi Tadayasu is an authentic sushi restaurant where you can enjoy exquisite one Michelin-starred omakase sushi courses in Gion, the heart of old Kyoto. Courses are offered both at lunch and at dinner time.
The first thing you'll notice when you walk in is the pale wood-based calming interior. The traditional woodcrafts on the walls and ceiling are particularly beautiful.
There are two gorgeous wide wooden counters on two floors with a total seating capacity of 12. The room with the counter on the second floor can be used privately for groups of up to 6 people.
From your counter seat, you see the chef prepare each piece and then serve it to you directly at your seat. This is the 'edomae' style of sushi, which also means that you are expected to eat the piece pretty much as soon as it is served to you. This is not to rush you but simply because the piece is at its best right upon being served.

The courses vary depending on the availability of the best seasonal ingredients, but you can be sure that you'll be served the best cuts of fish and other seafoods of outstanding freshness and quality.
You get served a wonderful variety of red and white-fleshed fish, shellfish, octopus, sea urchin, shrimps, etc, as the neta (topping) of the sushi.
As part of the course, most of the items will be served raw but some side dishes are also cooked. This exquisite soup is made of abalone liver.

In closing...

The sublime sushi is not the only reason you'll have a wonderful experience at Tadayasu. Indeed, the chef here is known for his great hospitality and kindness. If you do not speak Japanese, even though the staff's English is limited, they will go out of their way to make you understand what they are serving and make you feel welcome.
