Whenever I am in the area I always eat at Izakaya. It is right next to the train and several hotels.

When I walked up I noticed how small it was and that there were reserved signs at the sushi bar. Must be pretty good? It was awesome. Very fresh. Very well made. Banzai roll was the best I've had! Great dining experience.

Food was very good and tasty. Felt like I was back in Japan. Would definitely recommend. It is a small place so a party larger than 4 would be a problem.

It used to be one of my favorite Sushi in San Jose. I took three rolls: Rock'n Roll, spicy tuna and the California. They were very average this time!
