Restaurant Nippon opened in August 1963, becoming the first Japanese Restaurant in the U.S.A. with an authentic sushi bar. <br> In 1988, we introduced nihachi soba (with ratio of 80% of buckwheat flour to 20% of wheat flour) made from buckwheat seeds cultivated at our own farm in CANADA. <br> In 1989, after five years of negotiations with the F.D.A., we received an exclusive license to import Japanese " Tiger Blow Fish " ( Tora Fugu). <br> In November 2006, we became the only importers of natural wasabi from the Gifu prefecture, Japan. <br> In 2007, we started producing and serving tofu, home-made daily with soy beans cultivated at the Canadian farm. <br> On November 11, 2009, for the above contributions in the promotion of Japanese culture through Japanese food, owner and president of Restaurant Nippon, Nobuyoshi Kuraoka, was awarded by the Japanese Government " The Order of The Rising Sun, Gold Rays with Rosette ", (Tantamount to British Knighthood )

"Went for lunch during the restaurant week. The overall service was okay, but the food was great although they did not have any sushi or sashimi on the menu."
