I used to go to Japanese Restaurant Aki quite often when it was in its old location (next to Ala Moana), but I hadn’t been in a while to its new location in Kaimuki. I just went again recently though, and I was impressed by both the quality and diversity of food options.
Japanese Restaurant Aki has basically any type of Japanese food you can imagine, ranging from yakitori to teishoku items to shabu shabu to sushi to udon. Whatever Japanese food you are craving, you can almost assuredly find at Aki.
While it may seem like there are too many options for it too really good, I thought all of the items I ordered were quite good quality wise. The yakitori is solid and with a variety of of options, the fish quality for the sushi was good, and teishoku items such as misoyaki butterfish were great as well. I didn’t try the hot pot or udon, but I am sure those would be good.
The atmosphere of Aki is nice, as it is a covered outdoor location (the top is covered, but there are no windows). This allows for good ventilation, and as long as it is not too hot it is great. If you are looking for a new Japanese restaurant to try in Hawaii, I would recommend Aki!

This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
