There are very few Japanese restaurants in South Lake Tahoe, go figure. But we were pleased to find this one to be excellent. The grilled tofu and miso soup for starters were good indications for the rolls to follow, which were all excellent. My wife had a Chirashi (fish on a bed of rice) and the fish was melting in her mouth. Service was very friendly with large smiles.

Our family has been coming to this place for decades, maybe that's why we're biased. But the people here know their stuff, including the waiters & waitresses, all the ins and outs of Japanese food. We had sushi, sukiyaki, teriyaki, udon, miso etc, lots of Japanese selection and generous portions. The private Japanese room is so nice. Service also excellent!

High hopes, decent decor with fire pit dining. Service was slow, inept, disjointed- hard to get a fork and tea, meal got cold. The salmon teriyaki looked great- a bad piece of fish. Inedible.

Was quite impressed with the quality of the food. Rolls with eel were really good, I liked how the eel was warmed up and it just melted in my mouth. Sushi and rolls were tasty, fish was fresh .. Service could have been a little more personable and friendly, but not bad, overall ..
simple place, prices were reasonable
