This little nondescript sushi shop in Boyle Heights may quite be the oldest Japanese restaurant in Los Angeles. It opened in 1956, a long time before the sushi craze in the 80s, and for that reason alone most Angelenos love this place. The meals are always prepared perfectly, from the comforting Chirashi bowl to delicately sliced Sashimi, visitors will notice the care taken in the kitchen. There are only a few booths and several bar stools at the counter, but the trip to the East Side is worth it, even if you have to wait for a table.
