Worth to try this luxury menu Tsukiji-jougai-don
Tsukiji-jougai-don is Sashimi BAR Kashigashira’s special menu item.
This meal comes as a double bowl, one stacked on top of the other. The top half is kaisendon (fresh seafood rice bowl) that is full of seafood such as a prawn and ikura (roe), whereas the bottom half is kaisen-chirashizushi (sushi rice with seafood and other ingredients such as eggs and vegetables). Combining the two levels, you can eat over twenty different kinds of seafood.
We can safely say that you won’t be able to find another restaurant that serves kaisendon with so many different kinds of seafood anywhere but here. It’s 3,000 yen, but totally worth it!
