Here, you can try some seriously local cuisine such as 30 year-old fermented sushi. It is so well known that people from all over Japan would come here just for the fermented pacific saury sushi. They have everything from few-week old fermentation to 30 year-old liquefied sushi. In case you are wondering, the 30 year-old sushi tastes like yogurt and is a perfect match with sake. They also serve whale and dolphin cuisines.
