Restaurant’s Classical Appearance is Notable!
The classical appearance of Sushikyu is impressive and you can feel the history from it. This restaurant was made from old timber allocated when Ise Shrine was reconstructed in 1869, and it has been preserved with care as one of Ise’s important cultural heritages. Besides, this story is widely known as the sole case of allocating Ise Shrine’s old timber to an unofficial building.
