In 1970, Miyoko Omori came to the United States from Japan. After waiting tables for 7 years at Fuji Ya in Minneapolis, Miyoko decided she'd open her own restaurant. Miyoko left her job with only her last paycheck in hand, and convinced a local business owner to rent her a space for her now award-winning restaurant, Sakura, or "cherry blossom" in Japanese. The restaurant, located in downtown Saint Paul, consists of a traditional tatami room and a large sushi bar for those who wish to watch their sushi prepared. This is where you will find the most experienced chefs who are dedicated to their work and complete customer satisfaction. Come in today to try the a vegetable roll, fresh fish roll, or any other entrée that your taste buds desire.
