Got that craving for Japanese food? Want to support your favorite Japanese restaurant? Hakken Denver and the Japanese Arts Network maintain an excellent spreadsheet listing our favorite Japanese restaurants (some you may not even know about) including name, location, phone, hours of operation, web - as well as describing their takeout and delivery options. A great resource!
