Hello fellow chowhounds,

I've been living in SF for about 10 years now, and I'm a hardcore Japanese food addict. I go to Japan about once a year, mostly to eat my way through Tokyo. Wanted to share my top 5 Japanese restaurants in SF (city limits only) and ask for recommendations from fellow chowhounds.

My top 5:

Koryori / Kaiseki:
Kiss Seafood

Kappou Gomi

Aka Tombo

Honorable mention: Kirimachi for ramen - I've only been once but their tonkotsu ramen was by far
the best I've had in the city, and was actually south bay worthy. Will go back this weekend for another taste.

Still haven't found okonomiyaki, soba, udon, tonkatsu or yakitori places that really satisfy me. Any recommendations?

What are your absolute top 5 favorite Japanese restaurants in SF and why?
