Shop Introduction

Sengoku-zushi is a local sushi shop whose main business is catering and take-out. The shop’s quaint building has preserved its early Showa period character which has helped it become a local landmark. Hakozushi (box-pressed sushi) is the shop’s long beloved specialty favored by both local residents as well as visitors to the famous nearby Mii-dera Temple. Seasonal fish such as hamo (Japanese conger) in summer and sawara (Spanish mackerel) in winter are paired with other ingredients for a perfect harmony to delight your taste buds.
