About the Restaurant

If you’ve ever wondered where to go to get all your Japanese staples, the one-stop-shop is J-Town located at Woodbine & Steeles in Markham. Inside you’ll find everything from onigiri, to sashimi to a Japanese bakery and also Izakaya Ju. The specialties of the house are the chargoal-grilled yakitori (meat on skewers). If you’re lucky enough to get a glimpse into the kitchen you’ll see just how well-oiled it is. No cross contamination here. There’s a chef in charge of sushi, another for yakitori, one on appetizers, and another in charge of the noodle and rice dishes. While the kitchen is calm and collected, expect to be blasted with a chorus line chanting “irashaimase” upon entering.
