Decorated with traditional paintings

This is the charm of Robataya Ginmasa! As you can see, it is well decorated with Japanese crafts. You also can take special authentic pictures with Oiran-san (the woman wearing kimono and traditional makeup).



The Sushi Master showed us how to cut the fish (Hirame) and there was a staff assisting the chef by translating for us. It is definitely an eye opening chance for you to learn more about Japanese cuisine.


The chef used three knifes, the knife especially for sushi, cutting fish, and a normal knife.
