Miyakawa restaurant debuts at Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo
Sushi Shin by Miyakawa will open at Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo on 6 April 2019. Located on the hotel’s 38th floor, the Edomae-style sushi restaurant will be the first launched in the Japanese capital by Hokkaido’s three-Michelin-starred Chef Miyakawa. The new restaurant will complement the hotel’s existing excellent culinary offerings, which include Michelin-starred dining at Signature, Sense and Tapas Molecular Bar.
Diners at Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo’s Sushi Shin by Miyakawa will be in for a visual treat, as well as a world-class gastronomic experience. In addition to enjoying stunning views of the Tokyo skyline and seeing close-up the restaurant’s artisan-made furnishings commissioned by Chef Miyakawa himself, they can observe and interact with the restaurant’s master chefs crafting sushi dishes on the other side of a 350-year-old Hinoki cypress counter.
Each Sushi Shin by Miyakawa chef is trained by Chef Miyakawa to select and transform ingredients, sourced daily from Hokkaido and Tokyo’s Toyosu market, into delectable, seasonal sushi creations, such as seared pink sea bream served with wasabi and a pinch of salt, or sweet, bright orange sea urchin served over rice with a seaweed garnish. Ingredients are perfectly balanced to highlight subtle flavours and maximise umami (savoury taste).
Setting the scene for guests when they arrive at Sushi Shin by Miyakawa will be a wooden Edo Komon screen crafted by Nobuo Tanihata, a master of the 1,300-year-old Kumiko-style woodworking technique. The wall behind the counter is a mesmerising creation by Syuhei Hasado, Japan’s most renowned tsuchikabe (mud wall) designer.
