Iyomata

Exceptionally old sushi restaurant continuing business for 20 generations

Iyomata is located in “Kyoto’s Kitchen,” the famous Nishiki Food Market.  The first generation head of Iyomata moved from Iyo province (present-day Ehime Prefecture) to Kyoto in 1618.  He started a fish shop business first and after a while started a catering service.  Then, after the war, Iyomata became a sushi specialty restaurant.  Today, their 20th generation owner preserves Iyomata’s reputation.  They serve a variety of sushi, but particularly noteworthy is the Saba-zushi or mackerel sushi.  They use mackerels caught in Japan Sea in autumn only.  Perfectly seasoned vinegary rice and salty mackerel create the best combination.  This unique taste, unchanged for 20 generations, is a Kyoto local’s favorite.
