Nigiri Iccho

Location: Nigiri Iccho

Rating: Very good
Meal:  Lunch for 3
Price:  5497 yen
Payment: Credit cards accepted
Dishes: Various sushi plates
English Menu:  Yes, but you can just take plates from the conveyor belt.  If you order, you have to use an electronic tablet that has some English translations (very funny).  The waitress tried to give us an English menu but we waved her off.  It might come in handy or have specific directions for the tablet.
Smoking: No

Sorry only one picture, didn't feel like being obnoxious

Nigiri Iccho was one of our earliest restaurants we ever visited, back when it was in its old building that has since been rebuilt and moved across the parking lot.  We were a bit overwhelmed and disappointed back then, as there were no dishes on the conveyor belt and we had to order everything off of an all Japanese paper menu with only kanji and the like.  Needless to say, we didn't go back.  But then I heard they had rebuilt their building and friends new to Japan were raving about it and comparing it with Chuo Sushi, so we had to go back and check it out.

It's much nicer now, with very modern amenities such as wireless tablet ordering and nice sit down areas for families.  It doesn't feel quite as factory-like or echoey as the 100 yen cheap sushi places, which is good since it ain't cheap sushi prices either.  The actual items were hit or miss in quality, and my wife and I both agreed that Chuo Sushi was definitely superior overall, and also more expensive!  Nigiri Iccho is a nice in-between the hundred yen sushi joints and Chuo Sushi.  It's also more welcoming of a larger group of people.  You might be able to fit 6 at the table seating.

Overall, it was very good I'd say, though if I went a few more times I might know what to steer clear of and what to definitely eat.


  1. Thanks for the blog! I tried going to the location listed but I couldn't find it. Is it inside the city hall?

    1. So sorry, but I had technical difficulties when I made that post and couldn't get google maps to load. I have updated the post with the location. You can also find it on the main map at the top of the blog by clicking on the little expansion icon, expanding the Very Good ratings and it should be listed there alphabetically.

      Thanks for letting me know or I would have forgotten about it!
