What is Morimori Sushi?

Morimori Sushi is a popular conveyor-belt sushi chain based in Kanazawa City, Ishikawa Prefecture.

They use fresh local seafood and serve authentic sushi, carefully prepared by their chefs. As their name suggests, they boast generous portions, and are loved by many locals and tourists alike.

The Kanazawa Station branch in particular is easily accessible to tourists, making it the perfect place to stop by on your way to Kanazawa.

Morimori Sushi is known as a great spot to enjoy fresh seafood from Ishikawa Prefecture.

With friendly staff and a clean interior, you’re sure to enjoy delicious sushi in peace.

The three features of Morimori Sushi

①Fresh sushi ingredients caught in Ishikawa and Toyama

The greatest appealing point of Morimori Sushi is the sushi toppings, which are made with fresh seafood caught locally in Ishikawa Prefecture and neighboring Toyama Prefecture.

Fish landed at Kanazawa Port, Nanao Port, and neighboring Toyama Port are purchased directly from the market every morning, so you can enjoy the freshest fish of the day.

Another attraction is that by serving seasonal ingredients, you can enjoy different seasonal flavors every time you visit.

The recommended ingredients change depending on which fish purchased that day, so it’s interesting to see the sushi ingredients on offer change from day to day.

In particular, the squid, horse mackerel, crab, and blackthroat seaperch caught at Kanazawa Port are so delicious that they are rarely available in Tokyo.

②The seasonings are also produced in Ishikawa Prefecture.

At Morimori Sushi, they are confident in not only about the sushi ingredients, but also about the seasonings they use.

All of the soy sauce and rice vinegar used at Morimori Sushi is produced within Ishikawa Prefecture, and they value the local flavor.

As a result, you’ll definitely notice a clear difference from the soy sauce you get at other conveyor belt sushi restaurants.

They also offer a la carte dishes that incorporate Kaga vegetables, a local specialty, allowing you to fully enjoy the food culture of Ishikawa Prefecture.

This has resulted in a flavor that is loved by locals as well as tourists.

③The store is located in a convenient location

Morimori Sushi Kanazawa Ekimae is located just a few minutes’ walk from JR Kanazawa Station, making it very accessible for tourists.

It’s a convenient starting point for sightseeing in Kanazawa, so you can stop by between shopping and sightseeing.

Morimori Sushi is located inside Omicho Market, also known as “Kanazawa’s Kitchen,” making it the perfect place for lunch or dinner between sightseeing.

You can eat sushi while touring the tourist spots, or stop by when you return to Kanazawa Station, eliminating unnecessary travel time.

A few minutes after the restaurant opened, there were already 15 groups waiting ahead of us.

However, they have many seats available, so we had a table without waiting too long.

From here on, I’ll introduce the sushi that we actually ordered.

①Yellowtail and fatty tuna

First, I ordered the yellowtail toro, which said it was for a limited time only.

Yellowtail is a fish that is familiar not only in Ishikawa Prefecture, but also in the Hokuriku region in general.

It’s not a very familiar fish overseas, but you can savor the sweetness of the fat and it melts in your mouth even more than otoro.

It’s not widely available in Tokyo and other places, so be sure to give it a try in Kanazawa!

②Blackthroat seaperch

Nodoguro, a luxury fish, can be caught in Kanazawa Port and Toyama Port, so it is eaten as a winter delicacy.

Nodoguro is said to be a favorite food of world-class tennis player Kei Nishikori.

The white meat has a mild flavor, but it still has a strong umami taste.

③Conger eel

The next one I ordered was conger eel, and I was shocked the moment I put it in my mouth.

The meat was so soft that it immediately melted.

There was no unpleasant odor at all, and I was truly shocked.

④Bluefin tuna (1 piece)

Bluefin tuna is an essential ingredient in sushi.

this looks delicious, and it really was.

I was given a choice between two pieces or one, but I was getting full so I ordered just one piece, but I definitely recommend you order two pieces.

⑤Megisu Tempura

In Kanazawa it’s called “Megisu,” but it’s more commonly known as “Nigisu.”

It loses freshness quickly as it’s a small fish,so it’s said that it can only be served to customers if it’s purchased fresh on the same day.

It is made into tempura at Morimori Sushi.

It is soft and fluffy inside, and has a mild flavor with a slight bitterness, so it is suited to the palates for adults.

As not many restaurants serve it, it’s a dish that is unique to Morimori Sushi.

We also recommend the “Assorted Fresh Fish Direct from Kanazawa Port,” which allows you to enjoy the freshest ingredients of the day all at once.

It is common to eat shiraebi (sweet shrimp) on a gunkan platter, but if you’re not big fan of raw shrimp, they also offer kakiage (fried tempura), which you should definitely try.
