Now in its forty-fourth year of operation, Fujiya Japanese Garden Restaurant commenced operation on September 1, 1970 at Fredericksburg Road and North Zarzamora. It was founded, owned and operated by Joan “Mama” Momohira Wester and husband, Retired Air Force Major “Wes” Wester. After sixteen years at that location, the restaurant moved and reopened in 1986 on Fredericksburg Road. The Westers incorporated the restaurant as “Sushi and More Inc.” which is the present owner and operator under the general guidance of “Mama.” We are very proud of our long standing reputation for excellent Japanese food and service, and are particularly proud of our Sushi Bar which became part of our operation in 1986. On April 1, 1996, we closed the Fredericksburg location and moved to our present location at 9030 Wurzbach in San Antonio. We opened our doors on April 19, 1996.
We have hundreds of loyal customers who have been with us from the original opening, many of them young lovers and newlyweds who now bring not only their children, but their grandchildren to Fujiya. We are proud to welcome them, as well as many new aficionados of Japanese cuisine to the Fujiya “family.”
Although “Mama” is gone, her memory remains close to the heart in all of us and we will continue to serve our fine food and service as we have done forty-four years.
We say to you “Yoku Irrashaimashita” (welcome).
