Sushi Mizutani was a Michelin-starred sushi restaurant located in the Ginza district of Tokyo, Japan. The restaurant was owned and operated by Hachiro Mizutani, a highly respected sushi chef who trained under the legendary Jiro Ono. The restaurant was known for its exceptional quality and traditional Edo-style sushi.

Hachiro Mizutani began his career as an apprentice to Jiro Ono, the owner of Sukiyabashi Jiro, a three-Michelin-starred sushi restaurant in Tokyo. After several years of training under Jiro, Mizutani opened his own restaurant in 2002, Sushi Mizutani, which quickly gained a reputation for serving some of the best sushi in Tokyo.

The restaurant had a minimalist interior with a small counter that could seat up to ten guests at a time. The menu was omakase-style, which means that the chef selected the dishes for the guests based on their preferences and the ingredients that were in season. The restaurant was known for its use of high-quality ingredients, including rare and seasonal fish, and for its attention to detail in every aspect of the dining experience.

Unfortunately, Sushi Mizutani closed its doors in October 2016 after Chef Mizutani announced his retirement. However, his legacy continues to inspire many sushi chefs in Tokyo and around the world. His dedication to perfecting the craft of sushi-making and his commitment to using only the finest ingredients have left a lasting impression on the culinary world.
