The restaurant aims to fuse modern designs with Japanese culture. In the centre of the restaurant is a 360° counter where they serve customers freshly rolled seaweed temaki. The price range starts from ¥200 for one temaki. There are also sets available on the menu.

 

The name ‘Gonpachi’ originates from Shirai Gonpachi, the protagonist of a famous kabuki play.

The seaweed at Gonpachi is kontobi seaweed from Maruyama Nori, a 160-year-old company who own a sushi shop with three Michelin stars. It has a fresh and natural taste as well as a light texture.
