Carefully conceived Japanese. Every day, Every way.


Carefully conceived Japanese. Every day, Every way.

Takanori Fukui, Hitoshizuku’s owner, selects his favorite ingredients and arranges them in his store his way. Ocean sunfish offal in a vinegary miso is fairly standard, but he serves it in sesame oil, salt, and ginger, which suits the palates of Eastern Japan. He uses vegetables from Kawata Farms of Machiko-machi, and he drowns them in a warm soup. Cooking red radishes over an open flame soften the roots while unleashing its sweet flavor. And, raw garland chrysanthemums offer a strong fragrance and a crisp texture. He arranges these two ingredients with skill. His dishes have an artistic flair, and the menu is so reasonably priced that you’ll want to stop by regularly with your family and friends for a relaxing meal.
