Welcome to Shiro Kuma Restaurant


Our Story

Yasuo Shigeyoshi has spent 33 years perfecting his craft from his humble beginnings working in Japan. His journey into Japanese cuisine started when he got an apprenticeship with the japanese restaurant Osome in 1984; four years after moving to San Francisco, California in 1980. Working for the restaurant for about 3 years before finally being exposed to the tips and techniques of the sushi chefs, in 1987. It was then, in 1993, that he made his final move to Sushi Ko, a japanese restaurant in Larkspur Landing, California. Since then, he has expanded and refined his cooking style through his constant focus in his professional setting, and experimenting during his personal time.

Yasuo's vision of Japanese cuisine, and his restaurant as a whole, is focused on his upbringing in rural japan. Surrounded by areas of wild vegetables and home grown ingredients, Yasuo was taught the value of authenticity; which he brought with him to his new restaurant.
