Art With A Purpose

When you’re hanging out at Mashiko, you’re most likely eating and laughing and enjoying the art all around you (hopefully in that order).

Did you know that much of the art on display is for sale?  Several local artists have generously donated their energy and talents to create an eclectic mix of art representing two of our favorite things:  fish and Japan.  Of those pieces, the entire selling price will be donated to your choice of several worthy charities, including the Seattle Aquarium, Seattle Animal Shelter, and West Seattle Food Bank.  Pretty cool, huh?

We are especially excited about several new paintings currently on display.  Perhaps you will find that they move you as well.  The next time you dine with us, feel free to check out the informational cards next to each piece for more details.  We encourage you to give generously, and enjoy life!

Attention Holiday Shoppers

We know that you love giving Mashiko gift certificates for all manner of occasions, especially during the holiday season.  Rumor has it they are very well received!  Our fun t-shirts and baseball caps are available as well.  Still, we want to make you aware of another easy way to give a memorable gift this year.

You may have noticed the eclectic mix of art on the walls in our dining room.  Did you notice that much of the art on display is for sale?  Of these noted pieces, the entire selling price will be donated to your choice of several worthy charities.  We are currently featuring art donated from several talented local artists.  Each piece is framed and ready for gift-giving goodness!  Current pieces include fine photography, collages, and paintings.  We also have Japanese sumi paintings created by our very own Chef Hajime Sato.

We are proud supporters of many charitable organizations, including Seattle Aquarium, Monterey Bay AquariumSeattle Animal Shelter, and West Seattle Food Bank.  We encourage you to support your favorite organizations however you can, all year long.
