Konnichi-wa and Hello!

Welcome to Yao-Kiku.com, the online home of Yao-Kiku Restaurant, a place to enjoy the most authentic Japanese cuisine in Sonoma County, California.

My name is Sam Ogura, the owner of Yao-Kiku. I founded Yao-Kiku in 1991 and have been making sushi and Japanese cuisine for over twenty-five years. My desire is to offer only the most authentic Japanese food for the discerning palette.

At Yao-Kiku, we offer a variety of Japanese dishes both traditional and contemporary. Whether you are a sushi "addict" seeking the freshest maguro (tuna) or a filling meal of deep-fried tempura, Yao-Kiku promises to delight the senses. Even if you are new to Japanese cuisine we will be happy to suggest the most appropriate dishes that will make your experience eating at Yao-Kiku satisfying. We hope that this site informs.

Thank you for visiting Yao-Kiku.com

What's New?

Owing to the growing interest among customers in healthy eating and organic food, we have begun offering more certified organic food such as: spring mix salad, fresh vegetables from local farmer's markets, free-range chicken, and tofu.

Due to recent consumer interest in wild fish, we are also offering wild salmon and wild ahi tuna when in season.

As part of our commitment to protecting the environment, we are pleased to announce our partnership with a biofuel company in Ukiah that is picking up our kitchen oil waste and recycling it into environmentally friendly biofuels.
