I agree that opening a Japanese Eatery would be difficult because a lot of people have not experienced the variety and think that raw fish is the only thing there is. However there is more and if one opened I would definitely patronize it because I like Japanese, Thai food the best. That being said would it make it, that would be difficult, the suggestion to use an already established facility is a good one if you could work it out, it would also give people who like to try different food the chance to see what there really is to offer. Possibly if you were able to use one of the facilite mentioned in the emails, you might be able to do it in another area. There are open minded people who like new food, I would love a dish of tempura udon, or tendon, so check out your options and keep your mind open and think outside of the box on your business possibility. Good Luck whatever decision you make.
