Sushi
Fukuzuka is a small sushi restaurant located in the back street of Kagurazaka, Tokyo. Although our restaurant is located in such a quiet area, we are trying the best to provide a relaxing and a high-quality space for you to feel "wabi sabi (traditional Japanese beauty"
The factors that influence the taste of the food are various, but we will prepare sushi and sake by paying attention to "fragrance" and "temperature". We are appreciated if you can enjoy our place as a space to enjoy food as well as serving dishes, flowers, lighting inside the restaurant designed to resemble a nightly tea ceremony.

    神楽坂の路地裏に、 控えめに、 品良く佇む 江戸前鮨の名店。 風にたなびく 暖簾をくぐれば、 まるで会員制の ラウンジのような 薄暗く洒落た雰囲気の店内に、 朧げにライトアップされた 白木のカウンターが展開します。 その佇まいは、 豪華というより幽玄。 極めて上質な意匠です。 近年、 江戸前鮨にも 熟成製法や温度差別化など 革新的な手法が いくつも誕生してますが、 なんだかんだ最後は、 職人さんの手間暇と技量だと 個人的には思います。 もちろん、 ピンネタなど素材が 主役なのは 不動のファクターですが、 個人的には、 やはり腕かなぁ、 と思います。 その意味では、 フクヅカさん 間違いなく本物です。 気の遠くなるような細やかな仕事、 難易度の高い技術などとともに、 産地の方々やネタへの想いが 作品として見事に昇華されています。 全品がスペシャリテ、 迷わずゴールデンブザーな 名店です。

    It’s pretty cute little town with cute streets.. but at the same time everything felt very tight and not fancy enough for the price I am paying. I am sure everything was fresh but couldn’t taste that much of umami, and as others were saying I didn’t like the hot rice as sushi either. Also half or more than half of the course was more of sashimi than sushi, probably not too fulling but also gives you feeling like there’s something missing. The monaca was very nice how he freshly made in front of you and this young owner was very kind and understanding for two foreigner trying to figure things out (being late and etc) We were only two customers in entire place and I think that’s how he runs the place due to covid now days, otherwise it would feel very tight and very uncomfortable. Thanks the owner for his kindness but for the price and all, I don’t think I will go back or recommend the place for others.

    A very intimate dining experience with only 6 counter top seats. Dined with two coworkers who’s first time at a nice sushi restaurant. Great edomae sushi presentation and overall experience. Fukuzuka-San was very patient explaining each bite. Good for English speaking diners. Left feeling amazed and satisfied. Also, it’s so nice dining in a quiet restaurant for a change. I’ll definitely be back the next time I’m in Tokyo, and my coworkers are already planning their next visits to Fukuzuka.

    So, I had the pleasure of a 2.5h omakase with a master sushi chef. That, I've done before, but the trick yesterday was that I was the only diner. It was booked in advance and was the best sushi experience of my life. Not only the 19 courses of wonderful sashimi, nigiri, and one maki, but also the fact that this master explained every one of his decisions - the temperature of each piece of fish, which part of the fish was the source, the temperature of the rice used for that fish, the different vinegars used with the rice for that fish, etc. We relied on his limited English and my highly limited Japanese to communicate, until he brought out this neat little device that would translate everything each of us said. I want one of those, now. It allowed us to go from barely communicating to laughing, telling jokes, and enlivening the whole event. In Japanese, edomae, as in edomae sushi, means in front of (Tokyo) Bay and dates to the early 1800s. Here, each intricacy and detail of chef Fukuzuka's edomae susi was optimized, amplified and explained in front of me. I've detailed each photo with what Fukuzuka-san was doing on that course or step. I hope you like the pics and excuse that I am posting these same pics in Instagram. This place is difficult to find and feels almost like you are climbing the stairs to someone's home, but the seven seat restaurant is as clean, pristine, and refined as it gets in the world of sushi. I highly recommend a visit if you are in Tokyo. Bookable on OpenTable or directly.

    Outstanding experience with the greatest Japanese ingredients sourced by the chef. Every dish was really amazing and we got valuable explanation from the chef in a very friendly way to better understand what we were eating and how it had been prepared. All in one a high valuable experience recommended if you wanna share a memorable time with friends.

    I can understand the chefs’ strong message. However I don’t think that hot rice fits for sushi cuisine, though he insists this is the best match of the ingredient’s temperature. I think his ingredients are very good, so they can be too expensive, but I gave up the rice temperature, his strong chatting( I couldn’t speak with my partner at all), and the darkness of the room. 若い大将の熱心なこだわりは理解出来るが、素材の温度に拘ったという結果の温かいすし飯には閉口。ネタは最高のものを仕入れているという証拠も見せられるので、かなり強気の高い価格設定は仕方ないかも知れないが、終始大将の主張を聞かされ、相方とのおしゃべりも叶わない。茶会の夜咄に習ったという部屋の薄暗さで視覚による美味しさが感じられず、嗅覚と味覚だけで感じろと強要される感がつらい。

    Incredible Omakase experience. The place is just 6 seats, so it’s very personal. Upstairs on the 2nd floor - a little tough to find the place, but we couldn’t have asked for a better evening. The food was outstanding, the chef was fun, and the ambience was perfectly intimate. This guy deserves a Michelin star: From the presentation of sushi and flavor of food, to the way he grates wasabi, zests yuzu, grills eel, and makes ice cream with liquid nitrogen in front of you - all the details are there. It’s expensive, so be prepared, but worth every penny.

    The roots are amazing but I wish they can change around the order of the menu. It’s also a little expensive for the course. Wish there is a lighter full menu and a bigger full menu so girls can choose lighter menu!

    Before going, go to Fukuzuka's Instagram page (@sushi_fukuzuka) and watch the "to fukuzuka" videos for directions. Once you arrive at the white lantern on the ground, go up the stairs (even if it seems like nothing is there/open). My meal at Fukuzuka alone made the 14 hour flight to Tokyo well worth it. Amazing sushi prepared in front of diners behind an eight seat counter. An experience I will never forget. Well worth the price. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a unique and memorable dining experience in Tokyo.

    The food is fantastic. Price level is high but if you want this quality of sushi this is the price you need to pay. It is a bit hard to find the entrance so be there in time. Will surely have a star within short.

    This was a truly incredible meal and one of the best sushi experiences I've had in Japan. A bit hard to find, but the seemingly hidden location down a side street and up some steps, made it feel a bit more special. Very small restaurant with primarily counter seating. As a solo diner passing through Tokyo on business, this was the perfect spot for a late night dinner. I really appreciated their patience with my lack of Japanese, and we had some really funny moments with google translate. Not every high end sushi restaurant will take a booking from a foreigner, so I really appreciated their willingness and good nature. Pricing was in line with other high end Omakase menus in Tokyo, and you get what you pay for. Tuna was incredible quality. Would definitely recommend, and especially before the Michelin crowd starts coming, which I can imagine will make last minute booking impossible. I'm sure Michelin stars are in the future, so really a special experience to dine here before the hype.
