In the Montparnasse district of Paris, Toricho opened thirty-three years ago. The atmosphere of this sushi restaurant is very similar to those in the working-class districts of Tokyo. This sober look is no longer fashionable in the Japanese capital, and it has become rare to find yourself in such an authentic setting. It is only in Tsukiji, an old suburb famous for its large fish market, that you can taste this nostalgia. Basically, the Japanese prefer these restaurants that don't look like much, even if they don't have a Michelin star.
