    Yamaguchi Pref. Shimonosekishi Karatochou 5-1
    This puffer-fish restaurant is in Shimonoseki. Their signature dish, the Puffer-fish Rice bowl, a bowl of rice with raw puffer-fish and slices of puffer-fish outer skin and green onion, is popular not just with tourists but with the locals as well. Based around the motto of Cheap and Delicious, they also serve dishes such as puffer-fish tempura over udon noodles or Donburi (a bowl of rice with ingredients on top) and fried chicken.

    Restaurants in the neighbouring Kamon Wharf should be for tourists and the pricing there seems somehwat expensive. This Kawaku does not look pretty and guests had to buy tickets at the vending...

  • Hagi Shinkai

    Yamaguchi Pref. Hagishi Hijiwara 370-71
    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.

    Hamaryori Gangan is a seafood restaurant located in the Hagi Seamart roadside station on Prefectural Route 67 in the Chinto district of Hagi City.

    This restaurant is one of only 2, maybe 3 restaurants located within the small & quiet Hagi seaside market (building). The menu displayed outside looked interesting & prices seemed quite reasonable...

    山口旅の最後にはやはりふぐをということでこちらへ。ふぐのセットをオーダーしましたが出てくるのがめっちゃ早い…逆に早すぎるので作りおきのように感じてしまいました。てっさ、唐揚げ、ふぐ飯まですべてを堪能できますが、やはり夏場は旬の時期ではないので再リベンジしたいです。

    随分遠のいていたが、久しぶりに2度利用してみると、流石、皆さんの評価通りだ。 予約を取る時、お薦めの天然フグ刺し(時価で4500円程度)を一皿頼んで、後は店で追加という形をとると自然に進む。フグひれ酒も逸品。二人だとフグ刺しも丁度いい量だ。下関では普通のフグ・コースとは違ったスタイルで楽しめる。この品質なら安い。 続いて、その他の刺身盛り合わせも二人で一種類づつ楽しめる。どれも美味い。このフグ以...

    ちょっとした接待&送別会に利用しました。 正直接待には向いてませんが、お客様が魚を欲していたので こちらを案内しました。 予算がなく一番安いコースでしたがコスパ最高です。 付き出し3種(クジラの竜田揚げ・あんきも・イカの酢味噌和え) から始まり、鯛茶漬けまで満足でした。 出来れば追加料金払って刺身をゴージャスにすればよかったかな? あら炊きやあら煮は最高です。 次回は家族と来店したいと思いました...

Yamaguchi Areas

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.
