Sushi Sora


The freshest ingredients sourced daily from Tsukiji

Arguably Japan’s most famous cuisine, sushi as we know it, originated in Tokyo, then called Edo, the seat of power for the Tokugawa shogunate that ruled Japan from 1603 to 1868. Called Edomae zushi, it was made entirely from fish originating in Tokyo Bay and could be prepared quickly and eaten as a snack with one’s hands.

The sushi at Sora is made from only the freshest fish, imported from an extensive network of fishermen in Hokkaido, Okinawa, Osaka and Tokyo Bay, as well as chef Imaizumi's most trusted distributors at Tokyo’s famous Tsukiji Fish Market. “Personal relationships are extremely important at Tsukiji,” chef Imaizumi explains. “It’s not just about the money you are willing to pay.”

The menu at Sushi SORA reflects the quintessentially Japanese culinary embrace of the seasonal. “I choose and prepare fish depending on the time of year,” says Chef Imaizumi, who selects only the freshest fish from trusted sources, usually around thirty fish each day in summer and closer to forty during winter when shellfish are available. For curious visiting gourmands who order the Hokkaido sea urchin or halibut from Oita prefecture in the south of Japan, Imaizumi keeps a map on hand.
