After Canal City, we went back to the hotel and rested for awhile. It was actually my birthday on that day and we went to a sushi restaurant that night to celebrate.
The name of the restaurant in Japanese is たつみ寿司. They don’t actually have an official English or Chinese name. However, to make life easier, I used Google online translator to translate their name into English and Chinese. Their translated English name is Tatsumi Sushi and Chinese name is 巽壽司. They are located on the 7th floor of the new wing of Iwataya Department Store at Tenjin, Fukuoka.
They are typical of a traditional sushi restaurant, sushi is served on minimalist Japanese-style, geometric, wood, lacquer, clay or porcelain plates which are mono- or duo-tone in color, in keeping with the aesthetic qualities of this cuisine. Their sushi and sashimi are very good. Some of the fishes they serve are regional varieties found around Kyūshū and Nagasaki.
The quality of the food was very good and the service was excellent. Besides being a traditional sushi restaurant, some of the sushi were actually quite innovative. I am glad to say we had great meal and a wonderful time there that night.
