155 E 52nd StNew York, NY 10022


From Nobuyoshi Kuraoka, Restaurant Nippon opened in August 1963 as the first truly authentic Japanese restaurant in New York, and the first sushi bar in the United States. Mr. Kuraoka was the first person to import the delicacy “tora-fugu” (blowfish) into the US from Japan at a time when the fish was not known in the US. The interior of the restaurant was designed in the Shion-Zukuri style, stemming from the 10th Century Heian palaces, and includes exposed white wood and a Japanese cypress,.. all handcrafted without nails.
