If you like Japanese food, do not hesitate. Friendly people, nice decorated restaurant, small room very intimate. We went there for diner. I discovered what sake is. Don't be shy, try everything you can't be disappointed. Especially the black sesame tuna!!!

I love this restaurant and the service. They speak French English and Japanese. The daily lunch and the chirashi bowl were amazing. I would come back to Tours just for this.
