The dishes at Tsukada Nojo as prepared by Executive Chef Shingo Sato incorporate island-grown ingredients whenever possible. Besides the fresh chilled chicken from Punachicks, the produce is sourced from over a dozen other farms on Oahu, Maui, and Kauai, including Aloun Farms, Maui Farmers’ Cooperative Exchange, and Kaneshiro Farms. The result is a series of contemporary Japanese dishes vibrant in color and bursting with local freshness.

Tsukada Nojo opened its first location in Tokyo in 2007. Owner Hisashi Yoneyama sourced from farms located in Miyazaki, Hokkaido, and Kagoshima to create his farmer’s table style of dining. Fresh farm ingredients were served in an izakaya format to diners who sought after healthy meals without worries about from where they were sourced or how they were harvested or raised. The restaurant grew in popularity as evidenced by its 150 locations throughout Japan, and has since expanded to Singapore and Beijing, China.

Tsukada Nojo is located at 1731 Kalakaua Avenue, in a brand new two-story building near the Hawaii Convention Center.Reservations are highly recommended. For more information, please call (808) 951-4444.
