    Shizuoka Pref. Itoushi Shizumichou 7-6
    This is a seafood superstore which was established in 1946 in Ito city, Shizuoka prefecture. The shop deals in freshly caught fish and shellfish and sun-dried fish. The second floor is a restaurant where you can taste barbequed local fish. A specialty is “Nego Rice”, which is a reproduction of a dish eaten on ships by fisherman’s predecessors. It is recommended to eat roughly half of the dish as it is, and then enjoy this splendid dish with piping hot dashi (dashi is a simple soup stock used in Japanese cooking) poured over it.

    Excellent seafood where you grill your main dish at the table and an array of sashimi, pickles and paired ingredients joins the main dish, all with the charm of helpful ladies, who dont speak much...

    Shizuoka Pref. Mishimashi Hirokoujichou 13-2
    A long-standing eel restaurant founded in 1856 famous for its long lines of patrons waiting to get in. Inside the restaurant’s stately and solemn building, visitors will be charmed by a subdued atmosphere which conveys a sense of history and tradition. The restaurant’s recipes are family traditions which have been passed down since Sakuraya was founded, and regulars note that your meal is sure to be delicious no matter when you come. The restaurant’s eel “jubako” (stacked boxes of eel over rice) are particularly popular. Sakuraya let’s its top quality eels swim for several days in snowmelt from Mt. Fuji to marinate them, after which they are lovingly broiled with sauce to create meat that is flavorful, aromatic, and plump. The restaurant also offers a wide selection of individual menu items and course dishes. The closest station is Mishima-Hirokoji Station.

    We love Unagi dishes and visit Unagi restaurant every two months. Sakuraya restaurant is one of best choice from the view point of taste we think. Not so sweet, with a little smoky flavor is munching...

    Shizuoka Pref. Mishimashi Midorichou 21-6
    This eel restaurant was established over 60 years ago in Mishima City, Shizuoka Prefecture. It is a very popular restaurant that sells out at lunchtime even on weekdays, to the point that it almost never stays open until the evening. Its most famous dish is the unagi-don eel bowl topped with aromatic broiled eel. There are three secrets to its deliciousness: the underground water from Mt. Fuji in which the eels are kept alive for several days, the sauce made from a secret recipe added to over the years and the cooking skills of the chefs that are passed down through the generations. The unagi liver tsukudani (preserved in sweetened soy sauce) and hone sembei (crackers made from eel bones) are popular as gifts to take home.

    Shizuoka Pref. Kamogunhigashizuchou Inatori 371-4
    This sushi shop located approximately seven minutes on foot from Izu-Inatori Station is a famous shop that has been serving up kinmedai (red bream) nigiri sushi for over 30 years. Starting with the local Inatori kinmedai which is said to be particularly high quality even among Izu kinmedai, they also source wild local fish such as buri (yellowtail), hirame (flounder) and madai (another type of red sea bream) from a fishmarket that is within close walking distance. When the surface of the kinmedai is quickly seared, it takes on an exquisite taste that allows one to experience both the sweetness of the fat and the umami flavor. Enjoying sushi as a set with arajiru (fishhead soup made with kinmedai) is also popular.

Shizuoka Main Areas

around-area-map

With the giant Pacific Ocean to the south and the great Mount Fuji to the north, Shizuoka prefecture is blessed with some of the best views the country has to offer. The white sand beaches of the Izu Peninsula are a rare find on mainland Japan, neighbored by beautiful cliffs, tumbling hills, and natural hot springs. As Japan’s largest producer of green tea, the age-old tradition of tea drinking is ubiquitous in Shizuoka, from the miles of tea fields to the old tea houses hosting traditional tea ceremonies.
