This is a very unassuming Japanese restaurant located in downtown Portland. The menu items are always fresh and the rice is just right. The decor is a bit dated and the piped music can be extremely annoying especially if the same old CD of Japanese bamboo flute music happens to be playing. If you are fortunate to be dining with company, it isn't too distracting from the amazing food offered up. In particular, I enjoyed the sweet cucumber which is served with drinks, fried squid, rainbow roll and spider roll. Everything is perfect when you are immersed in the delectable and fresh cuisine. Highly recommended.
