MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Koji Kimura is the third-generation owner-chef of Yunagibashi Tak

oyasu and heir to its traditional flavours. He learned in Shimonoseki how to recognize high-quality fugu and inherited from his father the family’s culinary traditions. From the beginning, Yunagibashi Takoyasu accepts only wild fugu weighing 6 kg or more, as these are the most flavoursome. The menu features thick-cut sashimi, chiri nabe flavoured with shirako, and umami-rich zosui.

MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

This second-generation owner-chef learned the art of handling fugu in Yamaguchi Prefecture. He exercises his talents on wild-caught tora fugu from the Bungo Channel. The fish are fermented for several days, then butterflied and arranged in a floral pattern called botan-zukuri for a unique texture and flavour experience. The hand-pressed ponzu, stocked by the whole family, is a consummate match. Rock-grilled fugu, served to offer hot cuisine in the colder months, is a favourite.
