Our Remarkable Journey

Here at Osaka our journey is as remarkable as our cuisine. As young children fleeing Vietnam, our founders, Vivian and her brother, found themselves aboard a Norwegian fishing vessel bound for Osaka, Japan. There, they were embraced by a compassionate Japanese host family, whose kindness and generosity left an indelible mark on their hearts.

Their path led them to America, where tragedy struck on September 11th, 2001, claiming the lives of two beloved cousins in the Twin Towers. Yet, in the face of adversity, our family found resilience and hope, eventually finding solace and a new home in Memphis in 2003.

Honoring Our Past

In 2004, propelled by our vision to honor our past and share the flavors of our journey, we introduced East Memphis to the culinary delights of Osaka Japanese Cuisine. The name “Osaka” pays homage to the providential encounter with a Norwegian fishing vessel bound for the bustling port, and to the enduring spirit of the exceptional host family who provided refuge in our time of need.

As our newest location, opened in 2012, East Memphis epitomizes resilience and gratitude. Each dish served here reflects our commitment to excellence and our deep appreciation for the culinary traditions that inspire us.
