bodai (bodai(ボダイ))


Bar / Western Bar / Dining Bar

A restaurant and bar located right in front of Kii-Katsuura Station. Inside this fashionable restaurant where jazz plays over the stereo, you can enjoy fresh, Japanese-based seafood cuisine prepared with great effort by the master chef. The restaurant takes great pride in its dishes made with fresh local seafood and vegetables; the Katsuura fresh tuna in particular is bodai’s signature item. The fresh chu-toro medium fatty tuna cutlet is particularly popular, a delicate balance of the textures of the crisp outer breading and the inner semi-rare meat. The restaurant also stocks a full alcohol menu including local sakes, shochu, and wine. The lunch seafood rice bowl and sets are also well-reviewed.

          Wakayama Areas


          Wakayama prefecture unites pilgrims, food lovers, and culture buffs in a tranquil corner of Japan at the base of the Kii Peninsula. The setting for many a Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail, Wakayama invites those in search of spirituality from one side of the prefecture to the other, from the 100-plus Buddhist temples of the sacred Mount Koya in the west to the inspiring temples of the Kumano Sanzan set among breathtaking nature in the east. Once the grueling hike is complete, make a beeline for Wakayama city to savor some of the country's most delicious ramen noodles.
