Beniimo Roll colorful, tasty Yoshihachi treat

Date Posted: 2009-05-07

Yoshi Maekawa knows sushi, and he knows exactly which kinds key leaders of the world prefer.
The exuberant, outgoing owner of Sushi Bar Yoshihachi caters to everyone, and heユs as comfortable with the Prime Minister of Japan and other world leaders as he is with a young Marine who walks through the front door. The ever-present smile, together with recommendations from the menu, are continuous.
His Beniimo Roll at エ900 and the Soft Shell Crab Roll for only エ700 are two items he touts daily, even as heユs pointing out the other 198 selections on the menu. A look around the walls of Sushi Bar Yoshihachi bears out the restaurantユs popularity; snapshots of former Japanese Prime Minster Shinzo Abe, National Football League Hall of Famer Franco Harris, actor Tom Arnold, and rock icons The Ventures are on display.
So is a photograph of Maekawa with General James Jones, then 32nd Commandant of the Marine Corps, and now National Security Advisor to U.S. President Barack Obama. Heユs hoping Jones will return, and perhaps bring his boss with him. In the meantime, he says he has a running list of international customersユ reservations well into the future.
Maekawa says the best time to book a dinner is around 6 p.m. Yoshihachiユs is open 4:30p.m. to 12:30 a.m., except Tuesday. Reservations are available at (098) 936-2359.
To reach Sushi Bar Yoshihachi, from Kadena Gate 1 turn left onto Highway 58, then onto Highway 23 at the second traffic light. Under the blue overpass, turn right, then park in the large parking lot. From Marine Bases to the south, head north on Highway 58, then turn right onto Highway 23 just before Kadena Air Base. From Kadena Gate 2, turn right toward Highway 58 on Highway 23. After passing a convenience store, look for the blue pedestrian overpass. Turn left and Yoshihachiユs is about 300 meters from the intersection.
