Speaking of sushi, you can’t avoid tuna, can you? For people who agree with me, this “Sushi Ichiban” is highly recommended. They offer delicious tuna sushi for a reasonable price. They often hold the “cutting tuna show”. It is so powerful that you’ll be surprised.

Their tuna-sushi is very cheap. Two tuna-sushis cost ¥155. This is almost the same price as the one at the revolving sushi bar, but theirs are very delicious, because they have been sticking to tuna. Another attraction of this shop is that it is open for 24 hours. Even when you all of a sudden want to eat some sushi at mid-night, you can just pop in. How convenient it is!

This red vinegar is produced at the “Ichinokura” in the Sendai prefecture. It creates a different taste from the ordinary sushi.
