Japan was first dubbed the Land of the Rising Sun by well-meaning geography teachers who believed that giving each country a nickname would help them get to know each other.

Kani House's skilled teppanyaki chefs slice and sizzle savory hibachi items in front of table-seated diners while sushi chefs transform slivers of fresh fish into more than 50 house-specialty rolls. Dinner-time guests can nourish all five senses and provide play-by-play commentary as tableside chefs grill tender beef fillet with fresh-cut pineapple and smother it in a homemade sweet sesame-soy sauce, forging Kani House's signature Hula filet mignon ($23.95). Tongues can sample the fruits of the hibachi grill, including sukiyaki beef stir-fry ($18.95), or call upon lighter lunch selections such as the salmon teriyaki bento box ($9.95) to follow heavy mornings of chewing iron barbells. All six Kani House locations feature chic dining atmospheres and a mixture of modern design elements and classic Asian fixtures.
The sound of fire. The igniting exhalation before the steady breath of the flame sustains. The heat pulsing steadily outward from the steel grill—you feel it on your glowing face. But the chef looks cool. He’s a master, after all; a flat, metal spatula in one hand and an enormous, sharp knife in the other. Kani House’s teppanyaki tables are no strangers to the action of hibachi, where these chefs entertain their guests before plating seared steak and scallops alongside fresh, sautéed vegetables. The steady sushi masters may not share their compatriots’ outward exuberance, but their work is just as delicious. From behind their long bar, they assemble maki cylinders with tender cuts of fatty tuna and bright salmon, artfully arranging cuts of more than 50 specialty rolls in the shape of gentle caterpillars or fearsome members of the Japanese Diet. Bright bamboo panels and natural stone add to the vibrant ambiance, surrounding diners with dark-wood and nuanced accents that keep the focus on the beauty of excellent cuisine.
