Kobe is known to be a popular Kansai region alongside Osaka and Kyoto. Sannomiya, a leading hot spot in Kobe is where nationally high-level restaurants and confectionary shops fiercely compete for customers. Here, we introduce you to an extremely popular Sannomiya sushi restaurant where there is always a line of people waiting to get in.
If you use JR, Hankyu and Hanshin Dentetsu, or other major lines, Sannnomiya is only 30 minutes away from Osaka. Sannomiya developed greatly after WWII as the center of Kobe, a fashionable spot where there are boutiques that have impeccable taste. Also in Sannomiya, there is a China town called “Nankin-machi,” where you will find, as well as Chinese food, Japanese food, steak well known for using Kobe beef, Western food, and more. Sannnomiya is also a gourmet city, a competitive place for many restaurants.
In such a warzone of great food, you will find “Uwosei Sohonten,” a sushi restaurant where there is always a line of people waiting to get in. “Providing our customers food that is the same level as high-end restaurants, in a satisfying size.” They have faithfully stuck to this concept since starting the business. The fresh ingredients that the staff themselves choose at the market are not only from Yura fishing port of Akashi and Awaji Island, but from fishing grounds all over Japan. Benefitting from the fact that Sannomiya is a city with a port town and a central market, they are able to purchase the freshest food directly from markets and producers. The food they serve differs from day to day, depending on what is purchased, and this is what is great about eating sushi and is proof of honest purchasing. While successfully acquiring seasonal food, they provide large sushi at an affordable price.

Their other strong concern is “hospitality.” Sushi restaurants that offer high-quality food tend to have an image of “having a menu with no prices printed,” or “customers are nervous because they don't know how much they will be paying.” But at Uwosei, under the motto of making it enjoyable for everyone such as families, the elderly, and foreign travelers, they have been taking various approaches.
