As one enters the warmly lit restaurant one is greeted by cheerful boats bobbing along the canal bearing plates of California rolls and bowls of edamame beans.  The circular sushi bar has room for twenty sushi-craving patrons at one time.

Aki-san Yoshida reigns behind the bar expertly slicing fillets of fish with his sharpened knife as he has for the past seven years.  
The pre-game warm-up of the Sacramento Kings appears on the television nestled in the corner.  All who enter soon realize that it is “Taiko Time” at Taiko Sushi in the Sun River Shopping Center.
