About Us

Restaurant Serving Japanese and Local Cuisine Since 1998 in Hilo, HI

  

In 1998, Shiro Idomoto opened Ocean Sushi in Hilo, Hawaii.  It started with humble beginnings with the restaurant only serving sushi. However, as the popularity of the restaurant grew, Ocean Sushi expanded its menu. Today, they offer Japanese dishes such as tempura, ramen, and donburri as well as local favorites like hamburger steak and chicken katsu.


In 2007, Shiro’s son, Alex Idomoto, took over the operations and still manages the restaurant today. With over 16 years of experience, Alex displays incredible traditional technique, combined with a young creative twist on many Japanese favorites. Born and raised in Hawaii, Alex’s flair for balancing Hawaii’s wide variety of cultural foods can be seen in his tastefully constructed menu.

Shiro and Alex have always believed in family values, and this is reflected in their restaurant.  Ocean Sushi offers high quality food at affordable prices in a family-oriented atmosphere.  Shiro and Alex both have a passion for sushi and are constantly learning about how to make sushi and expanding their menu.
