When the mercury hits the low 60s outside, it can be hard to eat your favourite sushi and make the most of the time you have with your friends.
So, if you want to get a taste of the outdoors, the sushi bar at Tokyo’s famous Takayama-Takayama International Airport has been busy serving up some tasty treats.
The sushi bar has been open for two weeks, and they’re serving up their signature dish, the Shokubu Shochu (shrimp) roll.
As you can see in the photo above, they’re using fresh shrimp in their recipe.
The roll is made with three kinds of fish: fresh shrimp, octopus, and crab.
Shochus are usually served as a snack and as a main dish.
If you’re lucky, you might even find yourself dining out on one of the restaurant’s many other items.
The Shokubsu Shacho Roll is made by combining shrimp, pork belly, octopuses, and shrimp tempura, which are both made in-house.
The octopus and crab tempura are made in the same manner, but it’s the pork belly that you’ll get in your sushi roll.
And, you know, shrimp tempure.
The chef at Takayamas restaurant has also created a delicious salad dressing for the roll.
It’s called the Shoyama Sake.
Shoyamas Sake is made from the combination of fresh seaweed, sesame seeds, and a variety of other ingredients and it’s usually served in a bowl with a side of rice and vegetables.
It comes with a small side of sesame seed ice cream.
Takayas sushi bar also serves up their own special sushi.
The first one is the Shochisagi.
This is a roll of pork belly topped with crispy pork belly and seaweed.
It takes a little time to prepare and the chefs at Takaya Sushi Bar make sure you have a good amount of time to enjoy the roll before it gets eaten.
The next one is Takayasu.
This rolls consist of octopus with shoyamis sake sauce, which is then fried in the oil.
The rice, which comes in a large bowl, is wrapped in seaweed and then wrapped in sesame.
Takaya’s sushi bar makes the most out of its limited resources and has been making the most delicious sushi at Tokyo airport in recent years.
