Good dishes and landscaping from Japanese traditional room.


Beautiful view of the shore.

Amazing food in a traditional setting.

The owner of the shop is very nice and funny!


Best lunch and the older man who served us is a living legend - worth driving down from Tokyo just for him and his delicious food!


I was curious because there was always a line.
I went on a Saturday around noon. There were about 10 people in line and we waited for about an hour.
The dining area is an ocean view room with 6 seats. Enjoy a nice meal.
I thought this place was more of a place to enjoy quality food and memories than a value-packed meal.
I also enjoyed the friendly banter from the staff.
Tororo barley rice has a lot of flavor and has a nice chewy texture. it's the best.
I ordered salmon roe and salmon.
Crab soup is the best!

Considering the high price and the long wait in line, I can't go there many times.
However, I can recommend you to try it at least once.
The 360 ​​yen ice cream is rich and has a delicious coconut flavor! This is recommended.


I wanted to eat a delicious seafood bowl, so I visited a restaurant I had wanted to go to for a while while traveling. When we arrived just before 12:00 noon, we were immediately seated, but the seats were already full. Don't worry, there is a waiting area inside the store.
Waited for about 30 minutes.

We were taken to a large room that could accommodate about 7 to 8 groups and looked at the menu. The menu is written in ink and posted on the wall. As I was looking at the menu, an old man brought me tea and explained it to me in a humorous way, including some jokes, so I had fun choosing the menu.

It's a luxury that crab soup comes with the appetizer. I was very satisfied not only with the appearance but also with the taste.
The wild yam grated yam went down easily and I wanted to eat it alone.
Please go and check it out.

When you look out the window from your seat, you can see the ocean view spreading out in front of you. The weather was sunny and we had a delicious meal at a great venue. I will go again.

When I left the store after eating, there was a line in front of the store that I couldn't even get into the waiting area. Maybe the timing was good.

The store and parking lot are located halfway up the slope and are surrounded by trees, so visibility is not very good. If you go by car, you should be careful about your surroundings.
