This is one of the good Japanese restaurants in Georgetown although the decor is a bit dated and tired. However, it serves pretty good food.

Visit Kirishima while I'm staying in cititel penang, the food was good and fresh, must try the garlic fried rice and wagyu wasabi steak, if you like sashimi try other selection of sashimi.
