It's hard to find all around solid big menu Japanese restaurants like this anywhere on earth anymore, including Japan. So count yourself lucky to find one this good and reasonably priced in expensive Wakiki.
Various combo meal packages gently push you towards some variant of a bento box and the various mini courses that accompany everything are well thought out and executed.
Whether it's a charasi box or the much hyped butterfish (great, but not ga-ga great like people go on and on about here), everything is prepared with great care -and speed; be prepared to have your food practically flying out of the kitchen in record time. Sake's are very well priced and your server adds a lot of value in helping you select the right one. Service is as if by an old friend.
If you're looking for coconut shrimp or an american style sushi roll with 8 ingredients, don't bother. If you want to feel like you slipped into a Kyoto izakya (99.99% Japanese clientele) circa 1986, come and savor.
The oysters (4 for $15) were decent, given that they've come a long way. The home made green tea ice-cream is as good as at a 5* restaurant.
