Aka Oni

Corner of Mission and 6th Ave, Carmel, CA 93921


(Reservations highly suggested)

Aka Oni is very close to feeling I am in the best Tokyo has to offer.

This place is slightly hidden, small but very popular. There is no sign on the door or building. However, they have a menu placard located near the entrance. I love sitting at the counter here watching the owner carefully prepare sushi. I have actually never seen anyone so meticulous in the art. Also, though the quality is extremely high the prices are very reasonable.
