The Story Behind The precinct

About Us

Welcome to Torquay japanese precinct

A very first of its kind in Victoria, we present the Japanese Precinct in Torquay, located along the Surf Coast. Newly opened in 2022, whisk yourself to Japan and choose from a wide selection of Japanese dining. With a trio of venues in a beautiful courtyard offering the very best in authentic cuisine, this is a must-do on your visit to Victoria!

Located 100kms from Melbourne CBD, the Japanese Precinct is the ultimate stop-over for those travelling towards the infamous Great Ocean Road. Within walking distance to the beach and along Gilbert St in Torquay, we have three restaurants to choose from. Enjoy a hot bowl of Ramen, opt for some fresh seasonal sushi or a fill up on a BBQ wagyu feast.

Choose from Toki Modern Japanese fine dining, Yakiniku Hachibeh BBQ Wagyu specialty venue, and Shinya Ramen & Bar.


Japanese fine dining at its best. We serve traditional Japanese cuisine with a modern and contemporary approach, to present innovative dishes.

Choose the highly recommended ‘Feed Me’ course and pair this with selected sake and wine options for a truly unforgettable dining experience.
