Rating: Full RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull Rating
Absolutely amazing! We were looking for a good local restaurant and were craving something other than seafood and buffets as we stumbled across Hana Tappanyaki. What a treat. ..
Pros: The food was some of the best Japanese food I have had.
Cons: Off the beaten path but well worth the effort to find.

About James Island

James Island is a 42.1 square mile island separated from the city of Charleston by the Ashley River. Much of the island is part of Charleston proper, while part of it is an incorporated town. In 2007, the population of James Island was 37,363. The island is known primarily for farming, fishing, and shrimping but has become increasingly urban because of the expansion of Charleston. James Island is more residential than touristic, as it has no hotels or motels. Riverland Terrace, the largest residential section of the island, is only a ten minute drive from downtown Charleston. This neighborhood has about 800 homes of varying sizes and prices. It features a golf course, playground, public boat landing, antique shops and five restaurants. The approach to Riverland Terrace is called the Avenue of Oaks, as it is lined with 73 live oak trees believed to be more than 100 years old. Many people camp on James Island because of its proximity to Folly Beach.
The James Island County Park has a public campground, as well as a picnic area with shelters, vacation cabins, hiking trails, boat and bike rentals, a 50 foot tall climbing wall, and a water park. James Island doesn?t pretend to offer excitement for people looking for life in the fast lane, but it is a choice destination for the camping enthusiast and a quiet haven for those who seek an escape from the bustle of the city. And the cost of living is below the national average!
