Depending on the season, you may be able to sit outside on the terrace and gaze at the river while you eat.

    Luckily I could have limited available chacoal grilled “Tennen” eel (not farmed eel) which is cooked as Kansai style, however, a bit over cooked but still very tasty. Restaurant located on 2F with...

    Tsuzuki Seafood Restaurant serves fresh seafood and regional cuisine in a location about a ten-minute walk from JR Kochi Station near Harimayabashi Bridge. It is said to be the restaurant that invented Yakikiri no Tataki, in which bonito is seared over a fire, seasoned, and then sliced thinly to be eaten while hot. Customers can choose either counter or table service. A selection of the catch of the day is offered at the counter, including thickly-sliced Bonito Tataki, dishes made with octopus, and moray eel. This restaurant is popular not only with tourists but also with local residents. In addition to seafood, Ryukyu Island-style marinated dishes, Tosa-style sushi roll, and other simple local dishes are available, along with local Tosa sake.

    情報によると塩たたき発祥の店ということ。 間違いなく旨い、他の店では味わうことのできない美味しさ。ポン酢などは邪魔に思えるくらいにかつおのうまみが味わえる。店主のこだわりでチェーン店のようには品物は出てきません。それが駄目な人と一緒には僕は食べたくない、と言いたくなるくらいそのこだわりと一緒に味わえる気持ちです。

    This eel shop offers eel caught and charcoal-cooked to order. It's popular for the high quality of its rice, which is koshihikari grown in Kochi's Hamakaida by contracted farms, and their eel brought directly from Miyazaki Prefecture's Nakamura eel farm.

    Kochi Tosashimizu-shi Chuocho 6-1-1
    This shop is famous for serving the local “soul food” perayaki, a kind of savory griddle cake. It's like a thin okonomiyaki made with scallions and dried whitebait tempura, and it's topped with Soda-bushi katsuo flakes. There are four flavors of sauce: sweet, normal, spicy, and soy. Prices vary by size. This shop first made pera yaki in 1957. You can sit around a large iron griddle and enjoy it piping hot.

    夏の盛りにランチで行きました。炭火焼とのことで、お店の方は冷房も入れず、厚さに負けず、作っていらっしゃいます。暑いので持ち帰りにしました。お店の方と距離が近いので、涼しい時期にお店で食べることができるなら、地元情報とか教えてくれそうだな、と思いました。

The largest of Shikoku’s prefectures, Kochi is endowed with some of the island’s most exceptional sand beaches lining the Pacific Ocean, which narrows into the Shimanto-gawa, a huge river that stretches 196 kilometers into the prefecture, passing verdant mountains and hosting countless riverside activities. Whether you’re a pilgrim or not, Kochi’s 16 Buddhist temples that make up one leg of the Shikoku Pilgrimage are worth a visit, particularly Chikurin-ji for its five-tier pagoda.
