It might sound a bit strange to foreigners, but restaurants or bars with no seats are relatively common in Japan. The main benefit of going to these places is that they are significantly cheaper than most sitting restaurants, and they achieve this without compromising on quality. Standing sushi shops are quite popular. All kinds of people go there, from the busy office worker to the family with many children.

Uogashi Nihon-Ichi

Uogashi Nihon-Ichi is chain of standing sushi bars in Tokyo that takes pride in offering luxury dinning at a reasonable price. It takes special care in selecting some of the finest quality ingredients coming straight from the Tsukiji market (the biggest fish market in Japan) where it has its headquarters. It sources its vegetables from growers in Japan to ensure freshness and quality.

Menu

Uogashi has at least 10 different types of nigiri sushi (choices change depending on the season) to choose from with prices ranging from 75 to 150 yen. What's more, you actually get two pieces of the sushi for that price. The cheap and delicious nigiri sushis is without a doubt the reason people flock to Uogashi!
Shrimp is a popular item. At 150 yen it is the most expensive on the on the nigiri sushi menu.
This mouth-watering tuna twin piece sells for only 100 yen!
Other popular options are the tamago (egg) nigiri sushi at 75 yen, the classic and very popular with foreigners salmon nigiri sushi at 100 yen, and the anago (eel) one at 75 yen!
They also have a drink menu where you can have sour cocktails, sake, shochu and beer. Beer mugs are 550 yen and beer glasses are 380 yen. Beer or sake is the perfect accompaniment to sushi.

Lastly...

This type of shop is probably not something you would find in your home country. Go there to enjoy cheap, yet delicious sushi, and maybe enjoy a drink or two alone or with friends. Definitely a very Japanese experience you should try at one of the many Uogashi Nihon-Ichi standing sushi bars in Tokyo!
