    四万十川ドライブの際のランチで利用。四万十川の流れを店内から眺めることができる清潔で素敵な雰囲気の店内。 メニューを見て、「とおわ四季御膳(1580円)」を注文。 道の駅の施設ということ、メニューの写真をみるとあんまり美味しそうに見えなかったので「外す可能性があるかもなあ」と思っていた。 料理が出てくるまで、店の屋外テラス席から四万十川を眺めたりして時間を潰しているうちに、料理が出されてきた...

    いつも行列の絶えないお店です。中でも、一押しメニューはカツオ丼です。新鮮なカツオをふんだんに使い、ご飯が見えなくなるほど。極力、地元産のカツオを使用しているので、絶品です。

    Kouchi Pref. Kouchishi Harimayachou 1-4-12F
    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。

  • Hashimoto Shokudo

    Kouchi Pref. Susakishi Yokomachi 4-19
    About 10 minutes on foot from Tosa-Shinjo Station on the JR Dosan Line, this shop is famous for local Susaki cuisine and nabe-yaki ramen. The unpretentious shop maintains a cozy feel, and you can sit and enjoy steaming hot nabe-yaki ramen at either the counter or the tables/raised seating. The chicken-based stock is a pleasant soy flavor, with thin straight noodles, and completed with chicken, fish cakes, onions, and raw egg. The remaining soup makes great porridge if you add in some rice. Souvenir ramen is also available for purchase.

    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。

Kochi Areas

around-area-map

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.
