Eat and Go at Uogashi Nihon-Ichi, aka Standing Sushi Bar
Sushi in Japan has a wide range of pricing and quality. There are the splurge meals that will set you back over $200 USD. Then there are the cheap, everyday meals that can average about $10 USD. If you love sushi and can have it every day, head to Standing Sushi Bar in Tokyo to experience fast, fresh, affordable, and quality sushi.
Fast, Fresh, Affordable, and Quality
With its headquarters located inside Tsukiji Market, Uogashi Nihon-Ichi prides themselves as the leader among the standing sushi bars in Tokyo.
Uogashi Nihon-Ichi, also known as Standing Sushi Bar, offers fresh, quality, and affordable sushi. You can have a piece of sushi for as little as 75 yen ($0.70 cents) or even 600 yen ($5.50 USD) for a premium cut of otoro or uni.
There are 20 Standing Sushi Bar locations which are inside or next to most major rail stations in the greater Tokyo area. Each location has pictures of the sushi menu in front of the restaurant so you can already know what to order by the time you get to the counter.
The chef then comes to you at the counter and you tell him what you want – don’t worry, they are friendly to non-Japanese speakers. There are also English menus available. The chef makes your orders as you order – so it’s like a tasting menu with your own private chef with such affordable prices.
