Hello, Im heading back to Japan soon and since I wont be able to get out of Tokyo and also since I am pretty sure I can find it in the city but don't have time to look around for it myself, well I thought Id ask you ! Where can I find hakosushi/oshisushi also known as osaka-style pressed or boxed sushi in Tokyo ? Any specialty shop or some depachika stall (department store basement) ? Im thinking to bring back some home to Montreal. :) Thanks for your help !

    Sushi 468 (sushi Yoropa), in Asakusa, have 2 sorts of 'bo sushi(pressed sushi)': one made from 'saba(mackerel)', another one made from 'anago(conger eel)', and I recommend you to ask if they hold 2-3 days, for Canada. It is a sushi-yasan, all handmade, unfortunately he does not speak English. So at first, call him to reserve lunch/diner (tsumami ankimo recommended), and then, ask to reserve/buy one of your preference...
    Also, there is Kanda Shinoda that have some. On the basement, you can sample some, these one are more compact(more rice!). But they have a speciality of 'chakinzushi' that is made of a thin omelet rolled filled with rice and goma... Again, ask for the travel days..

        these sushiyasan do not use any conservative, except the classics sugar, salt, vinegar.. Saba especially degrades easily, so you'd better ask the chef, he knows what he is doing.
