(Just a note: We believe that everyone has unique tastes and preferences; so we refuse to assume that our opinion of what we like the most is what everyone else would like as well. However, we want to deliver a solid list of restaurants that you are most likely to love. To do this, we analyzed restaurant reviews, forums and other chats and then cross-referenced that information with the personal experiences of our friends, family and social network. We combined all of that information into a list of the most popular, most raved-about restaurant experiences. This is the list that we are excited to share with you! Enjoy!)

This restaurant is owned by 2 Japanese. Naoki, from Tokyo, and Monica, from Yokosuka, Kanagawa (Yes! Where the Yokosuka navy base is located!) We've had opportunities to try out some Japanese restaurants nearby, but we thought Brevard county needs a new Japanese restaurant that can provide real and popular dishes all the Japanese people (all generations) are crazy about. This original menu is made by both of us knowing what are the popular dishes and what are Japanese peoples' favorite. It comes from our experience living and growing up there, our whole entire life! If you have any questions regards to the menu, please don't hesitate to ask us! We want you to know more about how and why Japanese food is absolutely tasty! We also wanted you all to know more than sushi! We have curry, ramen noodles and other popular dishes from Japan! We have Japanese comic books in the restaurant so the customers can read and enjoy while they wait for their food! Please read and entertain your self while waiting! Thank you! ARIGATOU!! - Naoki & Monica"
