You can choose among about 20 different nigiri, priced between $1.50 and $3 apiece, and about 20 rolls at $2.50 to $6. Missing are the fantastic and pricey specialty rolls you find at so many of the hip sushi lounges catering more to a Western palate. The nigiri are well-constructed, with mildly sweet rice, excellent seafood and wasabi paste already incorporated into the bite. But soup lovers have reason to rejoice! Ajishin’s udon soup is extraordinary. There are also a few cold noodle dishes where the flavor of soba is better illustrated. Arashi, for instance, combines soba, grated yam, seaweed and green onion in a tangy dressing for a deep, almost smoky noodle salad. Open 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. and 5 p.m.-9:30 p.m. Wednesday through Monday; closed Tuesdays.

Dining is Japanese style in the tatami room or at Western tables. ****

This is the type of place where Japanese salarymen go out after work — and there's a large enough clientele to keep this izakaya (pub) thriving. It serves five Japanese beers, sake and hot sochu.

Tomorrow night, the sweet indie pop melodies of this Scottish five-piece will be floating through the Loving Touch. . With ease, front woman Tracyanne Campbell’s smooth, candied vocals and wry Scottish story telling illustrate the challenges of life. Themes often circle around heartbreak, a common thread running through their recent album Desire Lines, released June 4. The album title nods to life’s uncommon paths that are marked by wear, not by signs; the paths our feet choose naturally. Forging its own desire lines, Camera Obscura’s unconventional style is well off the beaten path.

It’s a movement.” Celebrate urban cycling and that hot bod of yours by scooting around Detroit with a bunch of nearly naked strangers.
