Hi everyone, I'm hoping you all have a few suggestions for some good Japanese homestyle restaurants in Seattle. Thanks!

    Sadly, the homiest is no more. We lost Takohachi last year.
    Two I consider somewhat homey are Maekawa and Fort St George (both in the same bldg). Maekawa is a Izakaya - drinks and small plates. FSG is a quirky mix of Japanese/Western dishes. They are both fun.

        not really - I've been reading a lot of Japanese homestyle cookbooks recently, and wanted to find someplace with a good variety of different types of dishes. thanks!

          i've had good experiences with the chicken nanban at Wann, and the crab cream croquette at Shiro, and curry udon at Tsukushinbo. also like the somen at Nishino and the uni spaghetti at Union (when they don't forget to put in the chiles and garlic). looking for a place that does a good una-tama-don...

        Yes, we mourn the loss of Takohachi. But I like Tsukushinbo for its noodle dishes and tempura. The lunch menu is a bargain--the donburis are good and quite generous
