Standing sushi bar - Uogashi Nihon-Ichi @ Dogenzaka, Shibuya, Tokyo

After capturing the pictures of Shibuya crossing, I was quite hungry at that night and have no idea on what to have. I walk around the fashion distict of Center-gai and saw this tiny sushi restaurant. Initially I was quite reluctant to eat at this restaurant as they don't provide chair to sit! Imagine walking around for whole day but still don't have chance to sit when eating! But their sushi is quite different and make it quite irresistible. It looks fresh, use lotus leaf and eating while standing :-)

In Japan, people watch TV and read short novels on their cell phones as they commute, making the most of every minute they can for leisure. Some companies started to holding meetings standing up as not to waste time on non-important issues.

Lunches are the same, making standing a bad manner of the past; there are standing bars, cafes, noodle shops. Now there is even a chain of standing sushi bars called Uogashi Nihon-Ichi where you can complete your lunch in 5-6 minutes.

Taste:9/10(Fresh and great sushi although not many selection).
Price:5/10(Moderate. The meal shown below is around 950 Yen. The portion is rather small when compared to other sushi restaurant. Maybe it is due to its location near Shibuya which tend to be more expensive).

This is the restaurant. The chef is busy preparing sushi.

Can't remember what type of fish used for this sushi. But it taste very good.



Squid tentacles.

Slightly roasted fish with light soy sauce.

Salmon sushi.

Address 2-9-1 Dogen, Shibuya, Tokyo.
Open daily 11.30am-11.30pm
