There is sushi, shabu shabu, sakana (or otsumami), udon and sukiyaki. Owners Executive Chef Shigefumi Tachibe and Sayuri Techie You can sit at tables, at the sushi bar or at the shabu shabu bar. Of course you can order anything from the menu from any seat, except shabu shabu. If that is what you want, you will want to be sure to sit in the section with the heated plates.
