Don't let the bland interior or the strip-mall setting dissuade you: many locals consider this the best Japanese restaurant in Tucson. Inside, perfectly prepared sushi and sashimi and generous combinations of tempura and teriyaki await, along with friendly service. The owner's wife is Korean, so the menu also has quite a few Korean classics, like beef and pork bulgogi (barbecued with vegetables) and tofu kimchi. Try a bowl of udon noodles, served in broth with assorted
meat, seafood, or vegetables; it's a satisfying meal in itself.
