Uosou Tsukiji

On one of the winter nights back in Tokyo, our friends took us out to a great dinner at Uosou Tsukiji.

We started with a couple appetizers, the ikura below was really tasty!

Then we started with the fish dishes.

Uosou Tsukiji Sashimi

The sashimi and sushi were both really fresh!

And because we are staying away from meat, we had a fish nabe with tofu, mushrooms, and veggies that warmed us up nicely.

Nabe with ponzu dipping sauce, my favorite!

Kazusaya Restaurant

Last year through our Tokyo friends we met another group of Tokyoites. We had a barbecue in Waikiki and had a great time!

One person that I made friends with that day is a restaurant owner from Tokyo who sent me a very nice gift after his return to Japan. He also said that when we were in Tokyo again, to come by his restaurant for dinner. So here we were at his restaurant in Asakusa…Kazusaya.

Almost the whole group that we met last summer was there taking up pretty much the whole downstairs area of this cozy restaurant.

On this night we were enjoying massive quantities of sashimi, seafood nabe, tamagoyaki, many different appetizers…

We also had this unusual cut of tuna that was so juicy and delicious!

To get here, after visiting Sensoji Temple we headed east until we hit the Sumida River. We walked north for about five minutes until Kototoi bashi (bridge). Crossing this blue bridge, you can see Tokyo Sky Tree ahead. It was on our left about a block after the end of the bridge.
