Try the Legendary Sushi of 'Kyubey' in Osaka!

Osaka City

Kyubey's original restaurant in Ginza opened in 1936 and is famous around the world. However, there is also a location in Osaka, which serves sushi of a similar caliber, but is much easier to reserve at.

Why Go?

Kyubey is said to be one of the top restaurants in the world, and definitely one of the best-known restaurants in Japan. The main restaurant opened in 1936 in Ginza and is wildly popular to this day. It's actually quite difficult to get a reservation at Kyubey's main location. Luckily, the restaurant has expanded, and now has 6 locations in Tokyo, and one in Osaka.

One might expect that the quality of the sushi at the other locations wouldn't match that of the original restaurant, but that isn't the case at all! The sushi at the Osaka location is the same quality as the original, and the experience of dining here is quite similar. The courses are simply fantastic, featuring top-grade neta (sushi toppings) and masterfully prepared tsumami and sushi. Those seeking a high-end edomae sushi counter experience in Osaka will not be disappointed with Kyubey!


Just like at the main location, the Osaka branch of Kyubey features omakase sushi courses (chef's choice) and 'sushi kaiseki' courses, which feature not only sushi but other delicately prepared seasonal dishes presented in a lavish course.

Lunch prices are between ¥5,940 and ¥16,200 for the sushi courses and ¥12,960 to ¥21,600 for the sushi kaiseki courses. A chirashi set is also offered at lunch for the same price as the basic sushi course.

Dinner prices are ¥10,800 or ¥16,200 for the sushi courses and between ¥16,200 and ¥27,000 for the sushi kaiseki courses.

If it's within your budget, the sushi kaiseki courses are highly recommended, but you won't at all be disappointed with one of the sushi courses.


The Osaka branch of Kyubey is located inside the Imperial Hotel, on the 24th floor. The easiest way to get there is via a shuttle bus from JR Osaka Station.

It's recommended to make reservations in advance if you plan to pay a visit.
