Japan is an island nation surrounded by the sea, and while we have access to a wide variety of delicious fish, it is a shame that people are becoming less and less interested in fish. It is a shame that people are turning away from fish. I hope that after people enjoy the appearance of fish, they will realize how delicious it is to eat," says Tsujii, the owner of the restaurant, who stands at the store with his abiding love of fish.

Ototo jet owner

The owner, Tomotaka Tsujii, has been a graphic designer for about 20 years before moving to a fresh fish restaurant. 10 years ago, he started a seafood lunch that became a hit, and now he is involved in a wide range of activities to promote natural fish, such as catering and events.

Most of the seafood they purchase is natural fish, sometimes delivered directly from fishing ports and fishermen. Kaisendon, chirashizushi, bento boxes, and other takeout items are available by reservation only through Instagram. From next year onward, the restaurant plans to start serving eat-in, so stay tuned for good news.

Ototo jet's Temari Sushi

Temari Sushi: 3,650 yen. The sea bream is aged to give it a rich flavor, and the smoked nodoguro is topped with yuzu kosho (Japanese citrus pepper). The combination of black, red, and ume vinegar on the vinegared rice is so elegant that each bite is sure to bring a smile to your face. Reservations required.
