Opened in 1953, Bush Garden is Seattle’s second oldest Japanese restaurant. Originally located in the Bush Hotel, the location changed to the current one in 1957, where owner Kaichi Seko designed and built the fabulous interior. It was one of Seattle’s finest restaurants at the time. While dining in the tatami rooms, patrons can still enjoy the décor of Japanese shoji screens, art, and bamboo. A pagoda roof and footbridge welcome diners in the entrance hall. Many of the interior features remain today as they were in 1957. Bush Garden has been a community gathering place for decades and was one of the earliest establishments in Seattle to offer karaoke. The Seko family owned the restaurant until it was sold to the current owner in 1997.
