Master Omakase at Oya

Last week I was in Boston for my sisters graduation and we went to my favorite japanese restaurant, and my favorite in Boston Oya. I usually order from the menu, but this time we had the grand omakase, which was absolutely divine (Although way to much food). Here some food porn on what we had:
