BTW though I don't go there as often as I should, I'm a fan of Shirahama. And though Kaito gets my top recommendation, Shirahama is the only other Sushi bar that I recommend to others.

Great post, Ed. BTW the octopus that you had is a Mizudako, a large octopus that comes from Hokkaido. As a seasonal item, you're lucky to have had it when it was avalable. I've had it at both Kaito and Shirahama. Kotani-san (Shirahama) tends to serve it as Nigiri, while Morita-san (Kaito) tends to serve it as Sashimi, but will also do it as a Nigiri. My personal preference is as a Sashimi, where Morita-san will cut it into thin discs across the leg, then butterfly each one open even thinner like two pages of a book, and serve it with Yuzu-Kosho and Himalayan Pink Salt.
