From the sea in southern Wakayama PrefectureWe have just caught tuna.
We are particular about "Wild Fresh Tuna" which is very fresh.The redness is the best product with a slight sweetness.The smell and flavor of raw tuna is condensed.This is our specialty.

We are proud to present you not only local fish but also whale dishes that you cannot taste anywhere else.If you have never eaten it or feel nostalgic, this is a dish you should definitely try.The recommended way to eat in the Kumano region is to eat sashimi that combines smooth red meat and fatty meat that melts in your mouth.Please enjoy the whale dishes of Maeda, which are famous for their exquisite taste.



In the Kumano region blessed with sea and mountain products, local sushi using local products has been born since ancient times.Among them, saury sushi is a fine dish that has been made at home for festivals and New Year's dishes.From late autumn to winter, fatty Pacific saury caught in Kinan coast is pickled in salt, then pickled in vinegar and put on vinegared rice.Please enjoy the vinegared rice and Pacific saury cooked from the point of view of a Japanese restaurant.
