In 1961 I was discharged from the US Navy Aircorp and returned from Japan. I found Japan to be wonderful place and its people delightful. Attending the U of M, I took Japanese as my language requirement. I found this wonderful little Japanese restaurant on LaSalle whereI visited frequently, where it brought back fond memories of Japan. After marriage and having a few children, we would dine and visit the most romantic restaurant {we thought} in Minneapolis, Fuji Ya on the river. The kids loved going there as we did and even other friends and there children enjoyed it also. Today our children still have fond memories and share stories of experiencing a different culture of the Fuji Ya and it had sparked there desire to travel and experiencing living in other countries. My son at 12 yrs also took Japanese as a language and be came very good at origami. Mrs. Weston was a gifted enteprenure who has left her mark on our city and we miss the Fuji Ya of old.
