At that time, you can move from your table to the performance area, and watch it at a distance of about 2m (6.56ft.). It is a good show for international tourists, because general restaurants and fish markets don’t hold this type of performance. So this is a rare restaurant experience.

Taking picture of the tuna cutting performance is allowed in this restaurant.

The weight of the tuna is usually between 20 and 40kg (44.0 and 88.1lb), but it depends on seasonal changes and when purchasing from a fish market. Although the size can sometimes be smaller.

I highly recommend Nama-maguro 生まぐろ.

There is another specialty food made from Nama-maguro. It means tuna which have usually not been frozen since the tuna had been fished. The tuna is shipped directly to this restaurant as soon as possible, so that this restaurant’s Nama-maguro is perfectly fresh for tuna sashimi. If you have issues with sashimi, you should try this restaurant’s sashimi. You will be a sashimi-loving person.

Here you can eat a wide variety of different tuna cuts, some of which may be unfamiliar to you, but all of which will be delicious because of the tuna’s freshness.

When you look over the menu, you will find some foods which are named “ 生まぐろ… (Nama-maguro) ” in Japanese. Those are definitely fresh tuna and worth trying.

“Tuna” is spelled either way “ まぐろ / マグロ / ” in Japanese.

Nama-maguro-no-okemori 生まぐろの桶盛り

The other one is 400g (0.88lb) for 3 - 4 people and costs 3480 yen.

This restaurant offers great quality soy sauce and wasabi for sashimi.

Tuna - Maguro-shouten まぐろ商店

These foods look like a pile of tuna sashimi on a tub, but there is some shredded Japanese daikon radish under the tuna sashimi. It is a good idea to eat it with a little bit of soy sauce like a salad. It makes your mouth feel refreshed from the slightly oily taste of the tuna sashimi.

Ootoro-no-osashimi 大トロのお刺身 Price ? yen (As Quoted)
Ootoro is a fatty tuna, considered delicious and is of the highest quality and therefore is the most expensive dish. The amount of Ootoro is small in tuna fish.

This restaurant offers this Ootoro at an amazingly discounted price during this 30 minute period only, and is limited-availability. Although it is sold at market price, it is still much more reasonable than in other nice restaurants.

Exceptionally, this food won’t be displayed on the touch screen menu. Instead, the staff asks the customers if they would like to have it. After you have been served, the price will be charged on your touch screen.
You shouldn’t miss eating their Ootro-no-osashimi. I wanna eat it again!

If you go to the restaurant alone, probably the staff will guide you to a counter bar. It is a good idea for you to see the tuna cutting performance and cooking view of sashimi very closely.

The nearest station is Shinjuku (新宿) Station in Tokyo.
