There doesn't appear to be as many sushi options in Branson as there are in Springfield. We went after SDC and enjoyed friendly quick service. They were accomodating to our 8-year-old daughter that was cold and tired (i.e. special tea)

This place is such a gem right in the middle of the strip. Warm welcome, tasty apetizer and great fresh sushi. Loved it! Especially loved that they had a menu with photos of the sushi rolls so you knew what you ordered. Thanks!

We are very fortunate to have had a long standing business in the Branson Missouri area. We were originally called Wasabi’s but changed that name a few years ago. You can still find info about both online but we are very happy to have had the same owner, Billy Whang as chief proprietor and head sushi chef. Most everyday you can find Billy doing what he loves at his sushi station at Wakyoto’s.Lunch and Dinner services are everyday (closed select Mondays throughout the winter months). But this restaurant serves both the tourism client and the local residents so business is always steady with lots of great fresh fish and lunch and dinner items.Wakyoto is a “Local” spot and many of the residents have their own chop sticks lining the walls of the interior. Don’t be discouraged by this as many tourist end up moving to the area and we’re always happy to welcome a NEW local.
