    "A Japanese seafood restaurant located a five-minute drive from JR Otsuko Station. The restaurant serves a variety of fresh dishes made with seasonal seafood just caught in the sea off northern Ibaraki. The ""Nama Shirasu-don"" rice bowl is particularly renowned-a seasonal item, it is made only with whitebait caught that day so fresh it was not even brought to market. "

    "A Japanese restaurant located in Oarai Town, Higashiibaraki County, Ibaraki Prefecture. The restaurant offers a diverse selection of dishes made with local fish, focusing in particular on pilchard served sashimi, tataki (seared), and tempura-style. The restaurant's ""Tokusen Kaisen-don"" rice bowl is particularly popular and covered with so much seafood, you can't even see the rice underneath. Another of the restaurant's pluses is that customers can enjoy seasonal Oarai flavors like rock oysters in the summer and goosefish nabe hotpot in the fall. The restaurant's ""Ryoshi no Dobujiru"" seafood miso soup, made without any water added, is limited to just one customer a day. The establishment's monthly special set meals are limited to 10 customers a day. The restaurant also offers omakase chef's choice courses perfect for important and special occasions."

    "A soba noodle restaurant located a 10-minute drive from Fukuroda Station on the JR Suigun Line. Operating out of a stunning, elegant countryside manor built 200 years ago which was moved to this location, a large waterwheel greets customers out front. The birthplace of kenchin soba noodle, a local specialty, the restaurant is stubbornly dedicated to serving good, old-fashioned foods regardless of prevailing tastes. The ""Tokusei Mukashiya Soba,"" which comes with chilled soba noodles, shredded daikon, and hearty, piping hot kenchinjiru soup for dipping, is one of the restaurant's most popular items."
