Enjoy exotic Asian décor and an amazing view through glass walls while dining in this Japanese sushi bar. Named one of the "Best New Restaurants" in 1998 by famed Esquire food writer John Mariani, it offers an overall dining experience that is well worth the trip. Try traditional sushi or sample a taco with spicy octopus. Just remember that spicy to the Japanese translates into solar flare hot. A full bar is not available. Reservations are required for large parties.
Since 1991 when this sushi-center opened, it has been recognized by the local press as one of the top Japanese restaurants in Colorado Springs.

Entrees are just as varied and feature tempura plates, and specialty items such as Teriyaki Squid and Salmon Kasuzuke.
