Mr. Gregory A. Boyko - Honorary Consul General of Japan

Dear Valued Customers,

To those of you who were able to come to our event last night, thank you very much. We hope you really enjoyed the evening with Mr. Gregory Boyko, a true ambassador of not just Japan, nor the U.S., but a partnership between the two nations. We like to thank Mr. Boyko, Honorary Consul General of Japan, for his generosity to come to our little restaurant with his wife in middle of a very busy schedule. His presentation of “Japan and the U.S. – The Most Important Bilateral Relationship” featured historic background and events that made Japan an economic force it is today and the role the U.S. played, and a partnership that were built over the years. Some customers traveled quite a long distance to attend this event, one flew in from Chicago, another drove from New Jersey. Thank you so much. It is our pleasure to serve you and hopefully everyone thoroughly enjoyed the Mr. Boyko’s presentation and the seven-course dinner prepared by Chef Ichimura and assistant chef Kishida. Again, thank you very much.

For those who couldn’t come to the event, I would have loved to be able to show some pictures from the night, but I failed to take pictures during the event.  But here I have some pictures of Chef Ichimura’s course dinner. 

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Dear Valued Customers,

Ever crave Maeda Sushi but can’t make it to the restaurant?
Complaining there is no food served on your flights, and nothing decent to eat at the airport?

We are improving these conditions.

Maeda Sushi quality at supermarkets and the airport!

Maeda Sushi quality at supermarkets and the airport!

Sushi rolls from Maeda Sushi are now available at several supermarkets. They are also at kiosks and food court at Bradley International Airport. Complete with new packaging (please check out the octopus logo nicknamed “Homertako” by artist Lynita Shimizu), our California Roll, Spicy Tuna Roll, Salmon-Avocado Roll, and Avocado-Cucumber Roll are sold at:

Bradley International Airport: Main Street kiosk, food court, and Locks Landing  lounge (daily)
Kane’s Market (Friday & Saturday)
Geissler’s Supermarkets – Granby (daily)
Fitzgerald’s Fine Foods (daily starting Friday, May 22nd)

Our customers know we care deeply about quality. They are not supermarket sushi, they are Maeda Sushi. It’s the same rolls we serve at the restaurant. I personally deliver them daily, and anything left from the night before is thrown out. You will only get the freshest sushi, with no gimmicks on the “Best By” date.


Dear Valued Customers,


We have the menu for the evening with Honorary Consul General of Japan!  We will serve this course dinner following Mr. Greg Boyko’s presentation of “Japan & the U.S. – The Most Important Bilateral Relationship.”  Seating is limited, and are going quickly…please make a reservation soon.  We will ask for your credit card information to secure your reservation.
