I'm a newbie here, but - - in a previous life, the Japanese restaurants we frequented were not all about the sushi. Hostesses in lovely kimonos provided gracious service. Excellent miso soup and a decent if very simple salad for starters, tempura that seemed lighter than air, some Teppanyaki....all in an atmosphere of tranquility. No requirement for shoe removal/floor seating. Can I find this type of Japanese in PDX proper? (Apologies if I just haven't read past the sushi reviews at Japanese eateries.) Thx!
