About us

The family behind Shimogamo moved to Arizona in 1994 from Japan, and they immediately noticed that their neighborhood lacked authentic Japanese food options. In 2003, Sanae and Yoshio Otomo finally decided to open a restaurant in Chandler to serve their native food, with as much respect as possible to the authenticity and quality of the culinary culture of their home country. Now the management has been passed onto their daughter Mika and her husband Daisuke, who are professionally trained as a sommelier and fine dining kitchen chef in Tokyo. With their knowledge, technique and vision, the restaurant continues to deliver the real flavor of Japanese cuisine.

The name Wagyu means 'Japanese cattle'. The Japanese have devoted extraordinary care and attention to the rearing of this unusual breed of cattle, focusing solely on the quality. These animals are given the best food to eat, are massaged to relieve stress and muscle stiffness. The result is the most tender, most succulent and tastiest meat in the world.
