% Arabica's all time favorite sushi bar in Kyoto. Sushi Imai is only a 5 minute walk from our Higashiyama store. If you want to experience the real authentic sushi, this is the place. The owner and chef, Imai-san, does not speak English, so please order ''Omakase,’’ which literally translates to “I’ll leave it up to you.” His eel is, according to % Arabica's founder, Kenneth, the single most delicious food in all of Kyoto. Omakase costs about 15,000 Yen plus tax and drinks, so the price is not cheap however, you can surely learn what sushi is all about at this restaurant. They take reservations only, so if you plan to go, he will understand (and treat you) better if you tell them that % Arabica recommended this place.
