There’s nothing quite like Kanazawa sushi. Yamasan sushi restaurant (山さん寿司 本店) is right inside Kanazawa’s historic Omicho Market. You therefore know the seafood is fresh.
Yamasan is at the Northern half of Omicho Market. Locals love this restaurant. If you you visit at an odd hour, you might be seated right away. This was the case with us – no wait.
I ordered the Kaisendon, or assorted seafood on top of rice. They’re known for this dish. It’s a lavishly decorated lagoon of fresh uni, scallops, tai, shrimp, etc. It will set you back 2,500 Yen.
They have your standard norimaki sushi as well. Below are the kappa maki (cucumber roll) and shiso maki.
For quality Kanazawa sushi, Yamasan is a reliable source!
