Come taste delicious chicken teriyaki, sushi, udon, edamame and, of course, the very Japanese corn on the cob.

Come experience the richness of Japanese culture shown through our indoor cultural displays of Sumi-e, Ikebana, Bonsai – even have your name written in Japanese calligraphy, Dharma talks in the chapel.
