    Okayama Pref. Kurashikishi Achi 2-19-30
    "This local restaurant is located approximately a seven-minute walk from JR Kurashiki Station. You can taste delicious, special seafood dishes using freshly caught seafood delivered daily from Shimotsui Fishing Port. An especially recommended item is the ""Omakase Kaiseki"" course that you can enjoy seasonal tastes of Setouchi from sashimi to simmered dishes and desserts using the Okayama specialty ""Mamakari"" (Japanese scaled sardine). Their ""Mamakari Teishoku"" and ""Hamayoshi Teishoku"", lunch menu items that let you taste Okayama seafood, are also popular."

    鰆、蝦蛄、メバル、飯借、地元の魚を地元の焼酎と一緒に美味しくいただきました。 どのメニューも美味しく、また東京では目にすることが出来ない料理もあり、 旅行先の食事としてとても良かったと思います。 予約の上6時過ぎに入店しましたがあっという間に満席になっていましたので予約必須です。

    Okayama Pref. Nimishi Nishigata 469-1
    "This local restaurant is located approximately a one-minute walk from JR Niimi Station. It is a long-established restaurant founded in 1929 that is often featured in the media and popular with not only local residents but also tourists. Their ""Bicchu Matsuri Sushi"" with whole mackerel sushi is a popular menu item that has kept the same taste since the store's founding. Their sturgeon dishes using fresh caviar, famous as one of the world's top three delicacies, and shabu-shabu hot pot with Japan's oldest cattle breed ""Chiya-gyu"" are also recommended."

    We came here with a group of eight for a light dinner. The udon noodle bowl with beef was very good. Other people had tempura and curry beef. There is an unusual display of stuffed animals and...

    Okayama Kurashiki-shi Shimotsui 1-9-33

    鷲羽山を散歩した後、評判に聞いていたこのお店を覗いてみました。一番にお孫さんから「いらっしゃい」と声を掛けられ、一気にアットホームな雰囲気に包まれました。カウンターと座敷の席があります。カウンターなら、動くタコ足がまな板に吸着して自らを固定し、調理されやすくなる不条理な姿を目撃することができます。単品で頼みましたが、タコの刺身は適度な弾力を保ったまま、しかし歯切れもよく、食べやすくしつらえてありま...

    ホテルリマーニに宿泊した際に利用しました。ホテルから歩いて五分くらいのファミマの前にあります。カレーとエビめしとハンバーグやエビフライ等とのセットメニューがメインです。個人的にはカレーもエビめしともいまいちでした。 店内も雑然としていて落ち着いて食事できる雰囲気ではありませんでした。 また店には駐車場はありませんのでご注意を。

    県庁通りと西川通りの交差点をほんの少し北に行ったところにこの店はある。4人だったので座敷を予約したが、2階に上がるのに一度外に出てから階段を上がる珍しいタイプのつくりだ。コースを予約したが、内容は魚料理をベースにした会席料理だ。前菜から始まり瀬戸内の魚介類、造りなど<直球>の会席料理を堪能した。いま一つインターネット上での評価につながっていないのは、今どきの創作系ではないからだろう。ストレートな...

    岡山市最大の歓楽街である柳町にある和食店です。会社の集まりでコース料理を頼んだのですが、どれも繊細な味付けで、すごく満足しました。刺し身の盛り付けなど、所々に店主のこだわりといたわりが感じられ、食べてて楽しかったです。お酒も豊富にありますよ。

Okayama Main Areas

around-area-map

Overshadowed by Hiroshima to the west and the Kansai region to the east, Okayama is an easy spot to miss but a nature-rich gem where the Seto Inland Sea laps at its toes and peach and grape farms complete its interior. One of Japan’s Three Great Gardens, Koraku-en in Okayama city is well worth a visit before progressing to Kurashiki, where preserved wooden Edo buildings line the picturesque canal.
