Can you guess this caviar and where to buy it in RI?

I went to Sakura in Providence and had great sushi. One piece my friend ordered had the most lovely red caviar on top. Tiny eggs which tasted so good! I think it's the best caviar I've ever tasted. But the waitress didn't know what kind it was, and I don't either. Does anyone have any ideas? And secondly, where can I get it?
If by "tiny" you mean approximately the size of poppy seeds, then that's tobiko, or flying fish roe. I've always thought of it as more of a color/texture accent than as "delicious" in its own right, but to each his own.
I don't know about sourcing it in RI. The Asian markets on Broad St. are Viet/Lao/Cambodian; I can't think of a predominantly Japanese one.
