Oshiruko: A Bowl Full of Tradition


In Japan, the New Year (or 'Shogatsu') is a time of joy and family gatherings, where special foods like Oshiruko play a central role. Oshiruko, a sweet red bean soup with mochi, is not just a delight for the taste buds but also a symbol of good luck and prosperity. At Sushi Kuni, we're offering this traditional soup, inviting you to taste and learn about this significant culinary tradition.


Otoshidama: The Joy of Giving


Another cherished tradition during Shogatsu is 'otoshidama' – the giving of small envelopes containing money to children, symbolizing good wishes for the New Year. Inspired by this, Sushi Kuni offers its own version of otoshidama: with each Oshiruko purchase, every table will receive a 'lucky' $10 coupon, our way of spreading joy and prosperity.


A Journey Through Japanese Culture


Our aim at Sushi Kuni is not just to serve food, but to create an experience that takes you on a journey through Japanese culture. The New Year is a perfect time to immerse yourself in these traditions and understand the depth and beauty of Japanese customs.
