    Hagi Shinkai is a restaurant next to Hagi Bridge specializing in Fugu (Pufferfish) and fresh fish from the restaurant’s own fish-tanks; the restaurant building, which resembles a white lighthouse, is very distinctive. Inside, the restaurant has the finest fish-tanks in Yamaguchi Prefecture, with squid, stonefish, flounder and other local fish species swimming around vigorously. Hagi Shinkai is famous for its squid dishes (made using squid from the restaurant’s own tanks), which have an exquisite flavor that permeates every mouthful; for these dishes, the squid is ultra-fresh, not being taken out of the tank until immediately before the dish is prepared. The Fugu (Pufferfish) set meal, which is available in the winter months, and the flounder set meal available in the summer months, need to be booked in advance.

    "This restaurant specializing in zosui (rice in thick broth) is located an approximately 12-minute walk from Shinome Station on the JR Yamaguchi Line. You can taste a variety of zosui from classics such as meat, fish, curry and kimchi, to items you rarely see elsewhere. Made a serving at a time in an iron pot, it is very filling. Their ""yokubari zosui,"" which contains plenty of seafood such as crab, scallops and shrimps, is one of the restaurant's popular menu items. In addition, you can also choose toppings such as mochi rice cake, kimchi and raw egg."

    有名なぞうすいやさんで、店内が満席の場合、店内で順番待ちができるのは、一組だけなので、休日の昼には外で行列となります。 ぞうすいの味は、みそ味とカツオ出汁になります。 量も多く食べ応えがあります。 一番人気のよくばりぞうすいは、蟹などが入った海鮮系のぞうすいになります。 店内は狭いため、相席でお願いしますと店の方から言われますが、相席の場合には、一人100円値引きとなるためお得感もあります。

Yamaguchi Main Areas

around-area-map

Heading west along Japan’s largest island, Honshu, the very last prefecture you’ll reach is Yamaguchi, separated from Kyushu by a small strip of water known as the Kanmon Straits, which the far-reaching harbor city Shimonoseki looks over. With water at every turn, the seafood of Yamaguchi is an indisputable highlight, and we’re not talking just the usual fish dishes—the notorious fugu, or puffer fish, is a Japanese delicacy that was discovered in Yamaguchi prefecture, making it the best place to try it out.
