Recently a landmark establishment closed. 

The Japanese Market/Restaurant located on NE 79th St. across from Channel 7 sadly closed their doors forever.  The tiny market started out decades ago as a small import/export food store.  Later a corner of the store was transformed into a 12 seat sushi successful eatery.  It was always standing room only.  According to the owners, they felt that it was time to retire.

Today the place is empty much to the chagrin of its loyal clientele.  Arigato and Sayonara.
