    Tottori Kurayoshi-shi Sakaemachi 1-876
    A restaurant with an old-fashioned look founded over 100 years ago in the Meiji period. It's about 10 minutes by car from Kurayoshi Station. They serve shabu-shabu (thinly sliced meat boiled with vegetables and dipped in sauce) set meals and rice bowl dishes you can dine on along a street with white walled storehouses. Their specialty is Mochi Shabu, featuring colorful mochi rice cakes resembling a twelve-layered ceremonial kimono. You dip the items in a skipjack tuna broth. The tasty and satisfyingly filling mochi is made with ingredients like carrots, shiitake mushrooms, matcha tea, and yuzu citron. Thinly cut and visually pleasing with subtle colors, it's become a hot topic in various magazines and on social media.

    We had dinner here and ordered a set of colourful Mochi plus beef Shabu Shabu for 2,160 yen. Cosy place and tasty food.

    "This restaurant is next to the fish market “Karo-ichi"" at Karo Port. Visitors can taste cuisine made from the local seafood such as white squid, horse mackerel, and thread-sail filefish. The famous specialty is an extravagant dish using a complete, living white squid, served whole as sashimi. It is a delicious dish where the taste of the freshly caught squid fills your mouth with sweetness."

    Tottori itself is a very nice place, because its coastal line is between the sea and the forest. The air is wonderful. This venue is located within the local fresh-food market, which gives is a...

You can choose the amount of rice you get, from extra-large, large, regular, and small, and no matter what time of year it is, lines of waiting customers often form out the door.

Shungo Tatsumi is located around seven minutes’ drive from JR Iwami Station.

    The lunch sets are very reasonably priced for the portion and quality. The menu is only Japanese but everything is displayed in pictures. My whole set including tea came to 1350 yen.

    Tottori Yonago-shi Hatagasaki 7-13-6
    A conveyor belt sushi restaurant about a 10-minute drive from Sanbon-Matsuguchi Station on the JR Sakai Line. Enjoy seasonal dining with a menu featuring local Yonago fish. The cozy shop has a welcoming, casual atmosphere for families and friends. They purchase their fish at the port daily, so they always have the freshest seafood to offer the guests. You'll want to check out the daily specials posted in the shop, as the fish for sushi varies daily according to what's available. They also have a variety of creative fare that you can only get there.

    平日ランチタイムの駐車場は満車状態のことが多く、2時半頃になってやっと余地が出てくるようです。店の入り口にある黒板にその日のおすすめのネタが出ています。その中からお好みでお造り三種にしてもらったり、あら炊きや酢の物などのつまみで居酒屋的な楽しみ方もできるお店です。

    This is a shop where you can eat fresh seafood from the Karo Port. The popular dish on the menu is a seafood bowl with generous portions of fish and seafood, best eaten with special sashimi soy sauce. There is also a ship-style tatami room to enjoy dining feeling as if you are on a ship.

    This restaurant is without doubt the worst one I have tried in a Japanese seafood market. The seafood don is way more expensive than what is charged outside (about 3x the price). It took them 30...

    This is a restaurant in Suehiro Onsen town, where one can savor the luxurious taste of charcoal-grilled local sea and mountain foods.

    "This is the restaurant of Yamadaya, a longstanding Karo Port inn which has been in business for over 200 years. Here customers can enjoy fresh, seasonally-inspired seafood cuisine; along with a view of the port town of Karo and ships and seabirds coming and going. The restaurant's signature squid rice bowl is touted as being the original and is also featured on the restaurant's sign; the popular dish is topped with an abundance of the area's famous ""white squid,"" which has a highly sweet and rich flavor. The rice itself is mixed with teriyaki-broiled squid tentacles and organ meat; in turn, white squid sashimi is elegantly arranged on top. Add the accompanying squid pickles with koji malted rice, shiokara salted squid guts, and secret recipe sauce to enjoy an even more flavorful meal. Even meals for dinner are reservation-only, so prospective customers must contact the restaurant in advance."

    こちらの方が新しく色々工夫されています。最近ではWさんよりこちらを利用される方が多いようです。新鮮なカニがお腹いっぱい食べられ県外の人をもてなすには最高です。
