Sorry to update this part where I almost finish my bowl. This is to recommend this place that the food looks so good and super yummy for sasimi-don. I love the tiny whole squids they put on top of this rice bowl with sasimi. It's just plain awesome of ingredients. Not so far from the hotel where I stay. As I am too lazy to walk far. The waitress albeit not speaking English is able to understand me very well. Staffs all are friendly. I recommend more travelers to be here :)
Menu doesn't have english language but if you know basic Japanese wording for what you want to eat. You will do more than fine.


course good food


All the dishes are delicious!
Yakitori plump.
The price is a little high due to the location.
