Conveniently located near the airport on the north side of town, this restaurant carries a wide variety of outstanding Japanese dishes. When I was working late, I would often stop by their excellent sushi bar for a quick snack. Their sushi is excellent. They have traditional Japanese private rooms as well as the showy Teppan tables. Highly reccomend!
