1. Ino Sushi:
Ino Sushi got a four out of five stars and it seems the favorite there is the Monk Liver. Comments were that you must try the Monk Liver. This is a very small place, not holding more than 15 persons and reservations a must. Even if there are empty tables, you will not be served without a reservation. The best place is to start, is at the bar and say, "Omakase Please." The bartender will make you a delightful dinner that you will never forget.
Some favorites from the Ino Sushi are:Bluefin tuna, Toro (Kobe fish), Pike, Engawa, Saba, Uni, Unagi,
Ankimo and Ikura.
You want to know how good it is? (comment of a sushi lover)
"We rarely know what he charged us for or what the price of each item was. All we know is that we are finished with our meal and the bill has arrived - and whatever the cost, our mouths and stomachs are screaming that it was worth it."
