Tohojaya

You can try some seriously local cuisine here! They offer narezushi, or fermented sushi, in a range of ages, from just a few weeks to 30 years! The 30-year old fermented sushi is so well-known that people from all over Japan come here just to try it. Fully liquified and said to have an impression similar to yogurt, it is a delicacy best enjoyed with alcohol. You can also try whale and dolphin dishes here.

Aged between a few weeks all the way up to 30 years. The 30 year-old sushi is in a liquid state and served in a bowl.

Unaju (Eel Rice Box)

The eel is cooked Kansai-style, grilled and not steamed, with a crunchy exterior and an inside that just melts in your mouth.
