Japanese
Restaurant Nippon opened in August 1963, becoming the first Japanese Restaurant in the U.S.A. with an authentic sushi bar.
In 1988, we introduced nihachi soba (with ratio of 80% of buckwheat flour to 20% of wheat flour) made from buckwheat seeds cultivated at our own farm in CANADA.
In 1989, after five years of negotiations with the F.D.A., we received an exclusive license to import Japanese " Tiger Blow Fish " ( Tora Fugu).
In November 2006, we became the only importers of natural wasabi from the Gifu prefecture, Japan.
In 2007, we started producing and serving tofu, home-made daily with soy beans cultivated at the Canadian farm.
On November 11, 2009, for the above contributions in the promotion of Japanese culture through Japanese food, owner and president of Restaurant Nippon, Nobuyoshi Kuraoka, was awarded by the Japanese Government " The Order of The Rising Sun, Gold Rays with Rosette ", (Tantamount to British Knighthood )
