We take pride in serving a multitude traditional favorites from Japan that just can't be found anywhere else in the Cincinnati area. 

Specials and menu items change daily, so we can take advantage of seasonal ingredients and serve only the freshest food. Our menu is extensive and we are sure you will find something for everyone's taste, whether you are a sushi bar regular or could just go for a steak. Of course we are also vegetarian friendly.
