Endo Sushi, Osaka

Top-notch sushi at the fish market

By Peter Lin    - 1 min read

Endo Sushi is a famous 100-year-old sushi shop located in Osaka's central fish market. The space is tiny but cozy and the sushi incredibly fresh. Sushi can be ordered a la carte, but the chef's selection set, or Maze sushi, which consists of 5 seasonal pieces of nigiri sushi for 1000 yen, is recommended. Each additional set allows you to sample of all the other fish of the day or just your favorites. Different from other sushi restaurants soy sauce is brushed on your nigiri sushi as desired. Endo Sushi is open from 5 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday to Saturday.

I first visited Japan in 2001 and since then have returned many times. With the efficiency and reliability of its transportation, the graciousness of the people, and the dedication to quality in food and service, Japan has been my standard for modern travel convenience. Every return has reminded me of the remarkable depth and diversity of the country with no two trips being alike, despite retracing steps through familiar neighborhoods. The constant dynamism of the urban centers combined with the emphasis on tradition, sense of aesthetics, and attention to detail make it one of the most exciting places to visit and an inexhaustible land for novel experiences, modern and ancient.
