FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A long-time restaurant at River Park in northeast Fresno has closed its doors.

The owners of Yoshino did not renew their lease, which ended in May.

The Japanese food restaurant and sushi bar had been in business at that location almost as long as the outdoor shopping plaza that first opened in 1996.
