Makurazaki Fish Center枕崎お魚センター

Meat / Fresh Fish

Makurazaki City is the top producer in Japan of deep ocean skipjack tuna and katsuobushi (dried skipjack tuna flakes), and this popular facility serves the freshest skipjack tuna. Located along Makurazaki Fishing Port, visitors can also buy fresh seafood direct from the adjoining market. The facility houses two restaurants. Sakanaya Shokudo on the first floor serves reasonably priced set meals. Buen on the second floor overlooks the port and offers seared skipjack and skipjack tuna head stewed in miso meals. The facility's warayaki event (reservation required), which teaches you how to properly grill skipjack tuna over straw the old fashioned way, and even which lets you try flaking katsuobushi are popular.

Reviewed:2018/06/02 Disappointing
Saw the market on Japan Hour or something. Wasn’t expecting anything like Tsukujj but there is really nothing to see, and apparently there is no barbecuing of bonito of any sorts. Ok to drop by if...

I had a chance to be taken here by a few locals we met in a bar. For a foodie this place is amazing as you get to see a lot of unusual food that maybe you don’t see in your country. Most of the shops...

          Kagoshima Areas


          Over 100 active volcanoes across Kagoshima make it one of the Japan's most exciting prefectures. The prefectural capital, Kagoshima city, looks out to one of the prefecture’s most spectacular volcanoes, Sakurajima, an island of its own that can be visited and seen close up or admired from afar, with the promise of breathtaking sunsets complete with frequent puffs of smoke and ash. Down the Satsuma Peninsula, the most southerly part of mainland Japan, waterfalls, sand onsen, and fascinating history await, while Kagoshima's abundance of satsuma imo (sweet potato) provide a wholesome snack as well as one of Japan's favourite drinksーshochu.
