In-season fish from the Naruto seas are the main ingredients. You can watch lively fish swim in the shop tank too.

    Tokushima Pref. Tokushimashi Konyamachi 13-1 and Yu-aung Building 1F/2F
    About 10 minutes on foot from Awatomida Station. This Japanese-style restaurant focuses on serving high quality local sake and fish from Tokushima. Visitors from outside Tokushima come for a relaxing meal in the peaceful atmosphere of grace and wood. “Tai-meshi course” is recommended—a full, grilled Naruto sea bream caught in the Naruto Strait. The luxury of flavor and firm succulent meat is tops—even among natural sea bream. You can also enjoy local Awa sake, and boiled dishes and sashimi made with fresh, local fish.

    Tokushima Pref. Tokushimashi Terashimahonchouhigashi 3-7-2
    Some of the popular items at this izakaya (Japanese-style pub) include their famous Tokushima gyoza (pot stickers), their honetsuki-dori (roasted bone-in chicken), and their garlic and soy sauce sautéed Irikasu, a Tokushima delicacy. They offer a menu full of delicious and safe dishes made with ingredients sourced locally in Shikoku. The izakaya offers two different course meals which can also be paired with two hours of all-you-can-drink. Course meals require a reservation for at least four diners.

    Tried the local delicacy - Chicken and tea rice, also ordered pork with rice and Chinese dumplings. Food was average. Not much choice around the area.

    Tokushima Pref. Narutoshi Kitanadachoushukumodani Aigadani 23
    This diner offers a full range of delicious fishermen’s cuisine made with fresh local fish. They offer highly fresh seafood including grilled seafood assortments and yellowtail sashimi at affordable prices. Although its availability is subject to the weather and the catch, we recommend their namashirasu-don (raw whitebait served on rice). In the winter, the restaurant offers all-you-can-eat grilled oysters from Uchinoumi (inland sea), Naruto City, Tokushima Prefecture or Shido, Sanuki City, Kagawa Prefecture, which is so popular that it requires a reservation.

    We have eaten at the other restaurant Bibimya just before and this restaurant is reached by driving along the coast along national road number 11 away from Tokushima. We actually wanted to buy...

    Tokushima Tokushima-shi Okinohamahigashi 1-54
    The restaurant offers cuisine made with seasonal ingredients in charming spaces that combine Taisho Roman style with Japanese Modern spaces filled with the scent of natural wood. Guests can savor the regional cuisine of Tokushima made exclusively with Tokushima ingredients as well as seasonal kaiseki cuisine. The restaurant’s popular lunches, which are limited to just 10 servings per day, feature a variety of dishes served in bite-sized portions.

    This is my favorite Japanese restaurant in the town. Service staff members were very professional and foods were great. Their Japanese garden is worth the visit.

The southeastern corner of Shikoku is home to Tokushima prefecture, a region celebrated for its luscious nature and the nation’s favorite Awa Odori, an energetic dance to which an annual summer festival has been dedicated. Keeping the upbeat tempo, whirlpools excite the Naruto sea off Tokushima, while inland, dramatic cliffs line the Iya Valley, promising unrivaled views of vast and vibrant scenery.
