    "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."
