It certainly took me a long time to visit this unprepossessing, almost discreet sushi restaurants: 31 years! And I certainly missed a lot! Oh, well, better (very) late than never!
Ekimae Matsunao Sushi, as its name indicates is conveniently located just across the (large) street from Shizuoka JR station North exit.
It has stood there stolidly since 1930, witnessing two major fires in the vicinity and a lot of history as told by his still alive an kicking 2nd generation owner. The gentleman is simply an unfathおmable well of information on the local history and gastronomy.

The fish and sushi are mainly local and simply first class. This coupled with reasonable prices make Ekimae Matsuno Sushi a compulsive visit.
I actually was told that many foreigners on trips to Shizuoka regularly visited the place (although the owner still does not understand why the same foreigners us so much soy sauce…).
And a great bonus comes with no less than 5 Shizuoka sake from Kokkou (Fukuroi City), Kikuyoi (Fujieda City), Masuichi and Chumasa-Yoshiya (Shizuoka City), and Hatsukame (Okabe Cho) Breweries!
