A long-standing Japanese restaurant said to have been established in 1858 standing at the foot of the Kintai Bridge in Iwakuni City, Yamaguchi Prefecture. Situated in a location with an excellent view of the bridge, this popular restaurant becomes swamped with reservations particularly during the cherry blossom season. Hirasei serves highly seasonal gozen meals and kaiseki course cuisine with a focus on local dishes such as colorful Iwakuni sushi and ohira (vegetables in a clear broth). The restaurant’s courses made with seasonal limited ingredients such as ayu, matsutake mushrooms, and fugu.

          Heading west along Japan's largest island, Honshu, the very last prefecture you'll reach is Yamaguchi, separated from Kyushu by a small strip of water known as the Kanmon Straits, which the far-reaching harbor city Shimonoseki looks over. With water at every turn, the seafood of Yamaguchi is an indisputable highlight, and we're not talking just the usual fish dishes - the notorious fugu, or puffer fish, is a Japanese delicacy that was discovered in Yamaguchi prefecture, making it the best place to try it out.
