West Omaha's Sushi Japan Yakiniku Boy plans to close its doors at the end of April.

In a Facebook post, the restaurant said its last day in business after an 18-year run will be April 28.

Its owners plan to retire, the post said.

Sushi Japan became well known in Omaha as an early adopter of the now-popular omakase service, or a chef's choice sushi menu. It also won the 2015 Food Prowl in search of the city's best sushi.

The restaurant is at 14134 West Center Road. For more information, visit facebook.com/sushijapan.
