We follow the traditional Edomae-Sushi methods for preparing Sushi. But, at the same time, we add our own modern ideas in order to enhance and take out the best taste and flavor of each unique fish. The combination of the old tradition and the modern approach will make our Sushi not only flavorful and tasteful, but also really original and artistic.

Our commitments


At Sushi Karin, the best quality fish, vegetables, and other ingredients are carefully chosen by our head chef and purchased from the market every morning.
In addition to using the best quality materials, we always try to maximize the characteristic taste and flavor of each fish by applying both the traditional techniques of Edomae-Sushi and our modern ideas.


We use the famous rice brand Uonuma-Koshihikari directly sent from our contracted farm, Karoku, in Niigata area of Japan.
Usually, Koshihikari is considered to be difficult to prepare for Sushi because of its sticky texture. At Sushi Karin, we had been through so many tests, and finally found the best condition, which not only enhances the great taste of Koshihikari, but also the taste of the rice blends beautifully with the vinegar and fish materials.


Traditionally, “red vinegar”, which has a unique umami and flavor, has been used for Edomae Sushi.
At Sushi Karin, we blend three different vinegars including the red vinegar to achieve our ideal flavor. When mix with the rice, you will feel its rich umami and flavor at the same time a unique strong personality.
