About Us

Our Name

Our name Hachi comes from the Japanese word for the number 8. Located on 8th Street, it also conveniently doubles as a hint to the neighborhood we are located in. Many may be familiar with the story of Hachi, or Hachikō. Hachikō was an Akita Inu that lived in the City of Ōdate in the Akita prefecture of Japan in the early 1900s. He is known for his remarkable loyalty to his owner which continued for more than nine years after his owner’s passing. As Hachikō was loyal to his owner, Sushi Hachi brings the same degree of loyalty and respect to its customers and food.
