Toronto sushi spot honours Japan's cherry blossoms with Sakura-inspired boxes

Apr 21 2021, 6:27 pm

Tachi, a small Japanese restaurant, is launching special Sakura packaging embracing the beauty of Japan’s cherry blossoms for an entire month.

The omakase spot,¬†which operates out of Assembly Chef’s Hall, will introduce the limited-time packaging on two of its omakase sets through mid-May.

“Due to COVID, people can’t travel to Japan to see the Cherry Blossom so Tachi decided to do this special limited-time packaging to celebrate the Cherry Blossom,” Kamen Sun, COO of the restaurant group behind Tachi, as well as Sushi Masaki Saito and Shoushin, wrote in an email.

“Tachi is not only about promoting good quality omakase sushi but also to promote Japanese Culture.”

Pricing starts at $45 for eight pieces of Nigiri and mochi. For $60, patrons receive nine pieces of nigiri, one premium fatty tuna handroll, and a piece of mochi.

Though travelling to Japan to see the cherry blossoms up close and personal is out of the question, Toronto has its own Sakura trees nestled in High Park that you can still enjoy.

Unfortunately, the trees will be fenced off to avoid crowding. This year you can still enjoy them through the City’s 24-hour 4K¬†bloom camera.

Along with Tachi’s sushi box, of course!

Orders for the special edition sushi box can be placed via Tock for pick up, Uber Eats or calling in.

“Cherry blossoms serve as a reminder that life is fragile and precious.¬† We need to make the most of our time and cherish every passing moment in our hearts,” Sun wrote.
