2013 Kitsho Sushi © All Rights Reserved. Made by Bytes and Notes
Yoshizen, Inc. took over a restaurant "Kitsho" in Cupertino in July 2012.
We serve traditional Japanese style of sushi, sashimi, and other Japanese food.
Yoshizen (Kitsho)'s "Kodawari" (like philosophy, principle, particular about something...., hard to translate straight in English)
We are particular about authenticity
We are particular about freshness
We are particular about quality
We are particular about provenance of fish
We are particular about seasonal fish & ingredients
Also we are very particular about the rice and vinegar:
You may notice that we do use "Tanryumai" (short-grain rice, variety - Koshihikari, California rice but closer to the rice that you can get in Japan) and "Akazu (kasuzu)" (dark colored vinegar made from lees, especially used for sushi over 200 years!) for our sushi rice
