   Welcome JARCC’s newest supporter!    
  JARCC is excited and proud to announce our newest supporter, Namiko’s Sushi Bar and Restaurant. Namiko’s has been in business for 35+ years and is one of the few Japanese family-owned and operated restaurants still in business.  
  Namiko’s Restaurant is located in Arvada, CO and has won the Best Sushi Award on Channel 7’s A-list for eight (8) consecutive years, and Denver’s A-List for many years. Jefferson County named them the Best Japanese Restaurant for many years due their popularity.
  Namiko’s opened on Dec 23, 1988 by Toshimi Yuriko Chandonnet, known as Yuri. She was born in Tomakomai, Sapporo, Japan in 1946, and immigrated to the US in 1967. After working other jobs through the years, Yuri decided to open her first restaurant. Although the hours were extremely long, she managed to do all the cooking, cleaning, preparing, organizing and serving to keep her customers well-fed.
  Her daughter, Namiko, for whom the restaurant is named, is the current owner and operator since her mother’s death on Super Bowl Sunday 2017. Namiko grew up working with her mom learning the restaurant business while her father taught her the bookkeeping/commercial side. Today, Namiko has her son, Kunio, help on the weekends at the sushi bar or in the kitchen. She is proud to report he is the starting QB at his high school, while only being in his junior year.
  The current location is a beautiful restaurant with large stunning and amazing aquariums. It’s a must-see! Having an aquarium was Yuri’s idea – she thought kids should have something to entertain them while waiting for their food and it turns out that it’s a great diversion for all ages.
  Enjoy our newest sponsor, Namiko’s Sushi Bar and Restaurant at 7310 W. 52nd Ave, Arvada. Eat in or order take out at or 303/420-3600.
