ost Cape Cod restaurants serve up their fish fried, grilled, or pan seared. At Inaho, you’ll get it raw. With its ultra-fresh but reasonably priced Pacific-style sushi blocks from the Atlantic, this restaurant is a sleek Asian oasis on the inside of an historic house, with muted colors, shoji screens, woven mats, and a bubbling pond for the inevitable goldfish. There are also teriyaki options for the sushi-phobic, and, for the sober-phobic, a huge selection of sake.

Cape Cod and its ship captains have a long history of contact with cloistered Japan. One, the Wild Rover, brought home a Japanese stowaway named Neesima Shimeter, who went to Amherst College before returning home and founding a small school patterned after Amherst called Doshisha, now one of the largest universities in Japan.
