Hanami Japanese restaurant is the best sushi restaurant in town. This restaurant is located at the Campus Village Shopping Center, in front of the building “University View”. The address is 8145-M Baltimore Avenue, College Park, MD 20740. Open seven days a week, Hanami Japanese restaurant is small but lovely and offers home-style Japanese dishes.

The hallway and dining area are divided by a Japanese style wall made out of wooden frames with Japanese patterns engraved on the upper segments.
