You walk through a door on a side street in San Mateo and ... wait, is this Tokyo? You seem to have been transported.

The place is tiny. Just a counter, no tables. The owner and his wife are the cook, bottlewasher and server here. On the wall over your shoulder as you sit at the bar are 3 large images of a bamboo forest. But face forward. You're going to want to focus on the food and drink.

On your first visit, you'll be told that this isn't a sushi bar. And that's true. But there is a great raw tuna dish. Get it. And then let the owner recommend a few other things. And take his recommendation on sake too. They've got a bunch of great cold sake. You will be very happy.

And then you'll walk outside and suddenly be back in California and without any jet lag.
