    What to know

I personally believe Chef Masa is one of the best sushi chefs in Japan. He can use the fresh and best ingredients of the season to create a lot of delicious sushi and dishes for his customers. He also takes his time to explain to each customer the different fishes he uses. You will never leave the restaurant hungry as he makes sure you are full before he let you leave his restaurant. This is the only sushi place I will always visit anytime I go to Japan.

Chef Masa is one of tokyo's great sushi chefs, but unlike a lot of sushi restaurants in Tokyo, eating here is celebratory and fun. We had a 2-hour omakase experience with some of the best pieces of fish I've ever encountered. The chef is lively and willing to experiment, not like the austere dining at some sushi places. He adds touches of lime, homemade vinegar, and perfect blends of soy. It's amazing!

There have only been a handful of times in life where I've been so full that I've been afraid to see food. My experience at Sushisho Masa definitely got that stage and that's not a bad thing! We came here after watching The Jiro documentary. However, rather than wanting to spend $350+/person on a 20-25 minute meal, we wanted something that would last longer to allow us to enjoy the food. We found Sushisho Masa through a YouTube channel (EatYourKimchi) we followed and decided to make a reservation. The whole dining are is very small, about 8 seats in total, all in front of the sushi chef. So reservations would definitely be the safest play. I lost count after the 1 hour of our 2 hour meal, but I'm sure we had over 20 courses each course consisting of 1 or more pieces of sashimi and/or sushi. I've tried fish that I've never heard of in my life, and they were amazing. I believe my girlfriend had preordered us a set menu, but we couldn't finish it. After 2 hours of eating I had to throw in the towel and let the chef know that he had beat me. I'm still salty over my loss. To give you perspective, we were the first to arrive and began eating promptly around 7:05 pm. A party of 2 came in at 7:15 and another at 7:30 and by 9pm we were still the only ones eating. I was full at about 8:30, and figured the set menu was close to ending so decided to wait it out. Imagine the horror I felt as he continued to make more. I was hoping my gesture of unbuckling my belt would show I was hitting my limit but it kept coming! I couldn't tell if the parties next to us were staring out out of awe or disgust but it didn't matter. The food was amazing. Would I want but again? For sure. But next time I will be sure to let the chef know when I'm full. My body cannot continue to take such punishment, regardless of how enjoyable the food
