Thank you for visiting Japan and Osaka!
also thank you for finding our sushi restaurant "Minayoshi"

Here are 8 reasons for recommend our sushi restaurant.

1. The dericious food and menu
The chef(Me) goes to fish market everyday and choose/buy the fish/ingredient
by myself. That is why our sushi/sashimi are so fresh!
I've been cooking since I was 18 and We offer a lot of dishes( see detail below) and menu are flexible.
You can ask "No wasabi!" "no raw fish!" "less rice!" any request available!

2. Better Price
The Conveyor belt sushi is certainly reasonable and interesting. However, if you are coming to Japan,
we recommend real sushi and delicious dishes made by long experienced sushi chef!
It is not really cheap but not expensive and reasonable!
Please read "Menu"below for more information!

3. The Chef can speaks English!
The chef(me) can speak english(may not "speak well " but yes I can!)
So you can ask me anything about sushi, Osaka, Japan, Japanese food , Sashimi so on.
and let's have a nice conversation with English freely!!
So please make yourself at home!

4. Long History in Osaka
Our small sushi restaunrant was established 1973(with my parents).
I took over the restaurant 20 years ago and then moved to current location.

Born in Osaka 1971.
I started my cooking career with French cuisine after graduation from high school.

I worked in Banquet/wedding palace "Taiko-en" in Osaka for five years and went to Toronto/Canada and
worked in the 3 Stars restaurant "Marcel's Bistro and Le Saint ropez" and "Markham Embassy suite hotel"

one year later, came back to Japan in 1996 and I worked in Inperial Hotel Osaka and
French restaurant in Nara.
My French career ended in 9 years and I took after my father's sushi restaurant in 1999.

Then I studied desperately in a different sushi restaurant and practiced hard at midnight and
learned a technique of sushi over and over.
It's been 18 years since I became sushi chef.

My interests
Sushi, Vegetable carving, wood burning and Star Wars!!

In 2013, I participated "Euro Carving Championship 2" in Russia/Moscow then showed
