Innovative makimono (sushi rolls) aplenty, including the lip-licking kissing roll -- crab, avocado, cucumber, and spicy sauce rolled inside-out with flying fish roe, then layered with cream cheese, smoked salmon, and daikon pickle. Get hotter with beef negimaki, scallions rolled in thin-sliced beef and doused in teriyaki sauce. Entrées such as eel fillet sautéed and served over rice in a lacquer box, katsu (fried fillet) chicken breast, and soba noodles in broth are neighborhood passions. Banana tempura for dessert. Lunch and dinner.
