If you can't find anything to eat and thrive hard to eat japanese food, this would be a good choice, it's very fresh and safe to eat. Taste is above average. เมืองไทยอร่อยกว่า

After read some good reviews of this place, we were off the next day. We arrived there around 1PM and the reception said the waiting time was 40 mins. We were okay but we weren't allowed to go outside, even to get a cup of coffee. Then about 15 mins later it was our queue. The setting was very high... More

Brought the family to Otaru and decided, based on recommendations, to give this restaurant a try. There was a long queue at 11:45am, and we waited about 35 minutes. We ordered a grilled mackerel (good, and possible the best item), Hokkaido steak, seafood sushi bowls (3 of them), an ikura don, and some assorted drinks. I had the local sake... More

It is a place where you can have a nice sushi in a luxurious interior. I did not eat a lot of delicious sushi too late to arrive. ㅜㅜ The last order for lunch is 3:30. I hope you can eat a lot of delicious sushi by checking the time well.~~~ I will visit again !!!

It is a return trip for us having eaten at this excellent restaurant 2 yrs back. Food is still good and fresh... it is on the pricey side though The male staff at the entrance is still the same not-so-friendly guy we met 2 yrs ago. The worst was a relatively young male server/chef (as he looks like in his... More

I tried the premium set with 7 sushi plus otoro. Overall the sushi is average in my opinion. Compared to tsukiji fish market, it's nothing closed. the place itself is quite luxurious high-end. Very nice for dine-in. It's located across the otaru canal.

First time to this sushi restaurant and from the review and that it was fully booked a day before, really raised my expectation of Masazushi, and as a result even knowing that we might need to wait for around one hour we still went there for dinner on the night. It was good that it turned out we only needed... More

Looks like a tourist trap. I tasted better sushi during my stay on Hokkaido and this is not among the best BUT the price is too expensive. I guess it is because the location is very near a tourist sport (Otaru Canal) and the staff can speaks English.

Well-prepared sushi at a good price. Staff were friendly and helpful. They have English speaking staff. There's a bit of a wait, but it's worth it. We enjoyed their sets - go all out, it isn't expensive for the quality - and the large botan shrimp was a Revelation. The fresh salmon was in season and the sushi... so fresh,... More
