I work close by, so I come here around once a week. My clients love it too! Fair pricing, fantastic portions.. Have you ever had a Rainbow Roll without imitation crab meat, no? If you come here, you will! It is simply amazing. Enjoy!

I've got an old standby in San Jose's Japantown--Tsugaru. San Jose's Japantown is very small, perhaps measuring three blocks by two blocks. You can't fit many Japanese restaurants in such a small area. You don't need to have many restaurants when you have an excellent...More

We've been going here regularly for > 10 years. This family-run restaurant serves very good food at quite reasonable prices. Some of our favorites: Daniel roll (sushi), futo maki (sushi), inari (sushi), grilled albacore, kaarage chicken, and both salmon dishes (teriyaki and shiyo). Give some...More

We came down to Japantown one night, kind of late, and this was about the only place open so we thought we'd give it a try. They were very welcoming and the food was quite good. I would come back.
