The decor and ambiance were inviting and a great blend of traditional and modern Japanese. It's traditional in it's feel, size (VERY quaint/small) and layout but modern in it's decor. The presentation the same, traditionally artful in modern stoneware. It's the closest thing...more to fine dining food in served Japan I've found here locally. The fish was the freshest I've ever experienced and the tempura was unequalled! The rest of the menu is equally impressive. I sampled a great many and none of them dissapointed. In fact most were incredible! The only thing keeping this from being the ultimate Japanese dining experience was the slow service. The servers were extremely polite and as attentive as they could as the place filled up quickly and was abuzz but there were only two of them and the wait time bordered on aggrevating. You really have to look for this one because blink and you'll miss it. Also parking is an issue on Kapahulu so if you can taxi or walk it it would be better. I highly recommend this one as a must visit. I guarantee you'll fall in love with the food but be prepared to wait for it. It's not cheap either but definately worth every penny!view less

This place rocks! The rolls were delicious however the fact that they serve multiple personal orders on one plate makes it confusing when eating in groups. Try the Echigo beer...great beer and goes well with the food!
