Japanese lunch in Pasadena
Is there a good Japanese restaurant for lunch that is walking distance from the Container Store?(Fair Oaks & Union) Sushi restaurant ok if they serve other stuff as well. If not Japanese, maybe Chinese?
If walking distance is the most significant factor, then
Sushi Roku - cross the street, into the plaza with Il Forniao and Johnny Rockets. Fusion rolls, appetizers.
Or go across the street to Kabuki. It's less expensive.
Or walk a little further down Fair Oaks to Wokcano,
or the nearby Famima! for quick to-go bites.

There's Kansai on Fair Oaks just south of Colorado. Good not great udon & soba noodles, ramen, bento lunches, etc.

And let's not forget Hurry Curry right across the street.
Pretty specialized menu, but I dig Japanese curry. (Though they also have Japanese spaghetti)
