Nihombashi Kakigaracho Sugita.

Sugita san is always a treat. His nigiri are always at the highest standard, the neta releasing massive umami matching the high acidity and texture of the rice.

I don’t think anybody would dispute that Sugita-san nigiri are at the very top of what one can get in Japan and by extension in the world. However, I was always slightly disappointed by his otsumami.
Not this time, quite the opposite. The plates which I don’t like disappeared and have been replaced by amazing creations.
Needless to say, that this was one, if not the best meal I ever had there.
Big Cinema!

Summer visit at Sugita. Excellent food as always, I find, with some exceptions, the ostumami inferior to the nigiri, also in comparison to other high end sushi restaurants. The Scabbard Fish (Tachiuo, 太刀魚), a summer fish very popular in Japan, was excellent. Equally, the Hotate (帆立 / scallop) wrapped in Kombu was as good as it gets.
However when Sugita-San starts with the nigiri, he is arguably at the very top of his profession. There are very few daishō in Japan who form the nigiri as... More

I obviously have not tried all the top sushi places in Japan but a lot of them. When it comes to Edomae nigiris I doubt that Sugita San is not in the top three. His concentration when forming the nigiris is a study in mediation. The fish exclusively sourced and the shari with the right acidity.
A must experience if you can have it. Try hard, very hard!

Another great meal at Sugita. This time on the same day as Saito (lunch and dinner). I am not sure if Saito had a rare off day but in direct comparison Sugita had the edge.
His concentration when forming the nigiri is like a study of mediation. He seem not to look but only to feel.
The neta is always impeccable and his rice seasoning is very much to my liking as the acidity dominates.
Sugita is now the number 1 sushi restaurant in Japan, I have been to maybe 100+ so surely not even representative,... More

Currently ranked #2 on tabelog Sugita pleases with greatly calibrated otsumami and nigiris. His shari is less acidic as Saito-san's but it fits to his style.
Great place and wonderful to have Saito and Sugita almost back to back

Now this is something to die for!
A friend of mine convinced Sugita-san to open his restaurant just for the 4 of us on a Saturday for lunch.
His entire team and his lovely wife were there to serve us and since my friend's wife is Japanese communication went beyond the usual exchange of niceties.
This all translated into a sublime meal which will be ranked in my top ten meals EVER!
My wife and I are so grateful for the graciousness of Sugita-san and his wife to treat us to such an extraordinary... More
