Sushi Shin by Miyakawa opened its doors. Located on the hotel’s 38th floor of Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo, the Edomae-style sushi restaurant is the first venue in Tokyo launched by Hokkaido’s three-Michelin-starred Chef Miyakawa. The new restaurant joins the hotel’s existing excellent culinary offerings, which include Michelin-starred dining at Signature, Sense and Tapas Molecular Bar.
Guests of Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo’s Sushi Shin by Miyakawa will be treated to a world-class gastronomic experience, stunning views of the Tokyo skyline and a stunning interior decorated with artisan-made furnishings commissioned by Chef Miyakawa himself. They have a chance to observe and interact with the restaurant’s master chefs crafting sushi dishes on the other side of a 350-year-old Hinoki cypress counter.
Each Sushi Shin by Miyakawa chef is trained by Chef Miyakawa to select ingredients sourced daily from Hokkaido and Tokyo’s Toyosu market. The provision is then transformed into delectable, seasonal sushi creations, such as seared pink sea bream served with wasabi and a pinch of salt, or sweet, bright orange sea urchin served over rice with a seaweed garnish. Ingredients are perfectly balanced to highlight subtle flavours and maximise umami (savoury taste).
The entrance of Sushi Shin by Miyakawa is decorated with a wooden Edo Komon screen crafted by Nobuo Tanihata, a master of the 1,300-year-old Kumiko-style woodworking technique. The wall behind the counter is a mesmerising creation by Syuhei Hasado, Japan’s most renowned tsuchikabe (mud wall) designer.
To celebrate the opening of the restaurant, Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo offers to book Nihonbashi Package, which includes luxurious accommodation, breakfast for two and the choice of cultural experiences in the historic Nihonbashi district.
