In the quest to fill up on frozen taiyaki, I found a few "Japanese" stores and restaurants, and none I've seen so far belong to Japanese. Sumo Sushi in Downtown is ran by Chinese, little store at Wyoming is Korean, etc.. I guess it would not be weird for me to open a Japanese store then. Maybe the cross-over is the Albuquerque way. On the other hand, Red Square at Lomas is run by Russians.

Japanese Kitchen is pretty much the Japanese cultural center of ABQ. They sponsor Obon. Go over there and talk to Keiko.

Midori Sushi on San Pedro and Montgomery- a little grocery next door is largely Japanese oriented (It's been while since I was there). Samurai on Gibson near San Pedro. Mr Sushi on Juan Tabo north of Eubank. It's tough going a mile without running near a sushi joint- most of the smaller ones are headed up by Japanese or Korean owners/chefs. For stores it's more pan-Asian out here than region specific. Ta Lin really brings that fact home.

Restaurants owned and operated by Japanese are Japanese Kitchen, Kokoro, Taka Sushi, Mirai Express.....

The last time I went to Kokoro on Menaul, I think every Japanese person in Albuquerque was in there. I don't know if the actual owner is Japanese, though.

steve - is Taka Sushi still open? Was recently dismayed to see lights out and doors locked during normal operating hours.

Covered on live journal a while back.

Kokoro rocks. They have natto. That is hopefully enough to spur a few visits by ya'll....

Google Kokoro

.....frankly hadn't been to Taka Sushi in quite a while so was unaware of that situation. I will whole heartedly agree that Kokoro ROCKS! Outstanding Japanese food prepared by Takako[owner]...yes, all the Japanese folks know about it. The most incredible curry i have ever tasted.
