THE FIRST TOKYO OUTPOST OF Hokkaido’s Michelin three-starred Sushi Miyakawa has touched down in the Mandarin Oriental Tokyo. From a 350-year-old hinoki cypress counter on the hotel’s 38th floor, Miyakawa’s protégé Kazuo Ogura slices, rolls and sears seafood sourced daily from Hokkaido into Edomae-style one-bite wonders right in front of his guests—all with perfectly paired sakes and phenomenal city views to boot.
