From Japan to Boston
- All the way to your tastebuds
Sakanaya means fish market. That's right, it's just a simple generic word for "fish market" in Japanese.
Just like Sashimi, be raw and simple yet delicious!
We've been in fish market (well, figure of speech but quite a lot physically, too!) for 20+ years. In Japan, west coast, east coast, north, south, Pacific, Atlantic, you name it! Next years let us keep buying quality fish, for you!

This is my go to place to get fresh sashimi in Boston!
The people who run the place are incredibly hard working and the place never disappoints with their selection of fish. The price is incredibly reasonable and they also have pre-made donburi and onigiri which are great to-go meals or snacks. They also have a variety of frozen and marinated fish as well as other Japanese items and a fridge stocked with Japanese drinks.
We bought a piece of tuna, hamachi, and salmon.

I love love love Sakanaya. I used to come here weekly when I lived nearby and several years later, it's still as good as I remember.
Sakanaya is nothing fancy, but it's a fantastic place to get fresh fish and sushi at really reasonable prices. They also have a small, basic menu of rolls, nigiri, and rice bowls. I always get the chirashi (sliced mix) or takara (chopped mix) for only $7~, which comes with a ton of fish. It's not a huge portion, but definitely filling.
The employees are also super nice! And they carry Japanese sauces/condiments, rice balls, and sweets as well.

Classic Japanese fish market. In addition, this place provides their own sushi dishes and fish bowls. Multiple choices of fish. They even have different class for sea urchin. The price varies from $7 to $33 per box, since they have imported sea urchins and locals.
It is not like this Chinpanese restaurants. Real Japanese hold this place and provide authentic sushi and sashimi. A call in advance is required to order the sushi and sashimi, but they are worth trying.
Drop by to buy some fresh fish, ingredients or order some sushi.
