Heddon Yokocho

Following the lockdown of 2020 our Sakagura restaurant was closed and rebranded as Heddon Yokocho which launched in October. Yokocho in the literal sense are narrow alleys on the side of main streets in Japan which are filled with hidden bars and delicious authentic food hubs. 

The old school style interior filled with the bright retro decorations along with the regional ramens and soul food sides created by our Executive Chef Kanji Furukawa will engulf you in the warm and cozy atmosphere of the past!


We would like to welcome you to Heddon Yokocho!
