Sushi Kappo Aoki

Sushi
An authentic kappo sushi restaurant a five-minute walk across the tracks from Tsuwano Station. It's a good place to try uzume-meshi, a rice dish that's a specialty of the Iwami region. The shop has a relaxed, nostalgic atmosphere. Dating back to the Edo period, at first glance uzume-meshi looks like another common rice soup called ochazuke. Tradition says its origins lied in hiding the main ingredients beneath the rice to appease Tsuwano's feudal lord, who was appalled by excess. Finely chopped carrots, shiitake mushrooms, kamaboko fish cake, etc. are simmered in a rich soup stock and served with rice in a lidded pot. It's delicious with fresh grated wasabi and nori seaweed, with crispy Japanese parsley accenting the lightly seasoned broth. The dish has been designated one of Japan's five most famous rice dishes by the Imperial Household Agency.

    Beautifully presented fresh and tasty sushi at reasonable prices. Considering this is an inland town it was quite surprising. They have a partial English menu and pictures of the set menus...

    地元などで水揚げされた新鮮な魚介類やとれたて野菜をふんだんに使った創作料理が美味しいです。お寿司を始め、お刺身も新鮮でおいしいです。

    郷土料理のうずめ飯を求めて、夜にお食事をいただきました。予約なしの飛び入りでしたが、快く迎えていただきうずめ飯やアユの塩焼き、こんにゃくのお刺身を堪能しました。郷土料理ばかりに目が行きましたが、今度訪れた際にはお寿司も食べてみたいと期待させるお店でした。
