(Sushi Soejima)

Even though Sushi Soejima is located at the heart of one of the most famous cities in Fukuoka, just five minutes from Hakata Station, you’ll be surprised at how peaceful and quiet the neighborhood this restaurant is located in is. Nestled in a tranquil corner, this Michelin-starred restaurant is a hidden gem waiting to be discovered by those who seek an authentic Japanese dining experience.

Run by a wonderful couple that oozes chemistry unlike no other, Sushi Soejima offers a dining experience like no other. Their impeccable teamwork is reflected in every dish they serve, and it adds on to the eccentric flavors of their creations. The husband, a master sushi chef, expertly crafts each dish with precision, while the wife, who is in charge of the service, greets guests with a warm smile and a genuine desire to ensure their dining experience is unforgettable.

Sushi Soejima offers both single dishes as well as course menus available, making it a versatile dining option for both lunch and dinner. Every visit is a new experience — the focus on seasonality extends to their ingredients and methods of preparation. Various flavors are introduced at different times of the year to not only suit the seasonal ingredients but also the weather. This attention to detail is what sets Sushi Soejima apart from the rest.

The restaurant’s sushi offerings are a must-try, especially the traditional nigiri sushi made with fresh and succulent seafood sourced directly from local markets. The sushi rice is perfectly seasoned and cooked to perfection, allowing the flavors of the seafood to shine through. Look out for innovative touches like presenting prawns in a butterfly visual, and boiling anago in white soy sauce to accentuate the natural flavors.
