Apparently Koyama was so successful and packed they had to open up Shinmachi.  Is this city really that short of good Japanese restaurant?  Why do we need two more mediocre places?

Fatty toro rolls(RMB80).  It was probably one of the better dishes on that day.  Still the fish had that supermarket sushi taste to it:  rice was stone-cold and tasteless, somewhat soggy seaweed, and nondescript fish.  For what they were charging I thought it was expensive.

Udon set(RMB68).  At least this was edible and good value.  The broth was actually rather nice and so were the fixings.  The noodles were a little too soggy and overcooked though.

Chirashi set(RMB88).  I guess you get what you pay for.  Fish was rather bland it was difficult to tell them apart.

Some kind of store-bought ice cream as dessert.
