Sushi and Japanese cuisine Hatanaka

Authentic Japanese sushi restaurants are said to have very high entry levels because of its price and strict manners. A lot of people get scared about it. We are going to change it. There’s no rules at our place. Just sit back and enjoy what is in front of you.

‘Sushi and Japanese cuisine Hatanaka’ serves dishes made with ingredients picked especially here in Hokuriku region.
We use fresh seafood unlorded at the Kanazawa port and freshly-grown local vegetables for our dishes.

We have some kinds of sake and natural wine.

It’s only 3 minutes on foot from JR Kanazawa station. We renovated the Machiya building (old Japanese-style house) built in 1940s.

Counter seats: 10 persons
Table seats: 16 persons
