Sushi Mitsukawa in Kanazawa's famous Higashi Chaya district.
Bask in the afterglow of the finest hospitality
as you walk home through the charming streets of Chaya.

Sushi Mitsukawa is a restaurant
in Higashi Chaya,
a well-known and historic district
in castle town Kanazawa.
The stone-paved Higashi Chaya district
located along Asanogawa river
that winds around the foothills of Mt. Utasu,
retains remnants of a bygone era,
with old houses adorned
with beautiful lattice windows called Kimusuko.
Come to the restaurant to enjoy
the charming location and refined Edomae zushi
served with supreme hospitality
in a relaxing and cozy atmosphere.

One of his other joys is fishing.
