Established in 1978, Japonica has become a very well known and popular local landmark. Japonica's high standards, skilled sushi chef and rapid turnover make for some of the freshest and most varied seafood and sushi in the city.
Japonica is frequently mentioned in the New York press as being "the place to go" for Japanese cuisine. Ask New Yorkers where you can find the beast sushi in town and the answer is always "Japonica". The authentic Japanese décor, knowledgeable staff and artistically presented menu items highlight all that is good about this village institution.
Japonica is located in the heart of the East/West Village, between Union Square and Washington Square. One block east of Fifth Avenue/Corner 12th Street.
