Welcome to Japan: You can enjoy Japanese cuisine at the highest level in the two branches of ROJI in Berlin. Here the art of sushi is brought to perfection. The concept of the restaurant follows the idea of the five elements water, earth, wind, fire and silence. The restaurants are furnished authentically with lots of wood and traditional murals and have a sitting area for each element. Food and ambience thus form an atmospheric whole - a journey to Japan.
By the way, Roji means "deaf-covered ground", a special form of the Japanese garden.
