Sushi Zo vs Nozawa/Sushi Park/Sasabune - sushi preparation question

g

I have a sushi question that has plagued me for years. It's about the sauce/seasoning used in preparing omakase. I love the sushi preparation that Nozawa, Sushi Park, and Sasabune do. I am less of a fan of the preparation that Takao and Sushi Zo use. I believe that Takao and Sushi Zo use more ponzu and yuzu. Sushi Zo seems to use ponzu and yuzu in every dish. Takao also uses a lot of shiso leaf. But I'm not sure if I'm getting my sauces right. Am I right in my guess about ponzu and yuzu?

Thanks so much for your help!

    Yuzu and Ponz sauce are both citrusy, with Ponzu frequently containing yuzu. Some chefs use it more than others.
    Nozawa and Sasabune have their own thing...
