Monthly Sake Pairing Dinner
Sushi Den/Izakaya/OTOTO Newsletter
Feb 2016
Newsletter No. 90


It is almost March! Spring is just around the corner.
At Den Corner restaurants, we are very excited to bring you a few new exciting things this year.

One of the new things is we are eager to share our unique Japanese culture through various activities.

While we continue to introduce new fish directly sourced by our youngest brother living near the Nagahama fish market in southern Japan, we also organize Monthly Sake Dinnersat OTOTO. For this dinner event, whenever possible, we plan to bring sake brewing masters and specialists from Japan. We are also adding one-of-a-kind great sakes to the menu, as well as to introduce some fun Sake and Shochu based cocktails, which is in the works right now.

We are also starting a section on our website blog to share things unique to Japan in our "Japan Corner". Read the first installment, "Brief Guide to Sake" right now. With non-stop flights to Tokyo from DIA, it's easier than ever to get to Japan. We would like to share some interesting useful tidbits about Japanese culture.

We hope 2016 will bring you much happiness, good health and success in your endeavors!

Japan Corner


Our ancestors in southern Japan came from the linage of the Samurai clan and our family had a few Samurai swords kept for centuries as family treasures. However, after the war - 70 years ago, these were all confiscated by MP of United States. The funny thing is even though we no longer own these samurai swords, we now have sashimi and sushi knives instead and the irony is we now have a sushi business in the United States. We used to rule with our Samurai Swords, and now we rule with our Sashimi Knives! I am sure our ancestors’ Samurai swords are somewhere in United States, maybe waiting for us to find. By the way, here is the great exhibit in Denver taking place soon!

Samurai Armor Exhibit at Denver Art Museum -
We got a good kick out of reading in the Wall Street Journal about the temperature-controlled cargo planes filled with salmon, which we know something about, that were used to transport the Samurai artifacts! We can’t wait to go see this exhibit!!
