Old house restaurant which specializes in seafood dishes
Robata, Sushi HOTARU/ 炉端・鮨 螢
At first, you pass through the gate and step on some stones then walk for a little, finally open the door. The appearance is like an old house. As soon as you open the door, you will be greeted with bright atmosphere and smiling staffs. You may be feel roasted smell of fish and it stimulate an appetite. Fresh seafoods and vegetables are cooked by Japanese style barbecue at front of you. I suggest sitting on bar seats, and you can enjoy watching the process of grilling fish.

1Must Eat !
Today's Yakizakana Teishoku / ￥900
Look at the photo! Fish is almost shoot out from a plate. Fish is changed from day to day, and today's fish is fat saba which is cooked well. Accompanied radish makes you refresh. This is exactly Japanese style lunch teishoku (set meal)
2Must Eat !
Today's Kaisen Teishoku / ￥900
Ingredients change from day to day. Today, yellowtail and raw egg were topped. I am wondering that raw egg and fish may be unfamiliar to you, but these are really fresh, so you don't need to worry about that. Before eating, please crash the egg and spread it on the fish. Donburi become mild with the help of raw egg. Kaisen don topped raw egg is unusual style even though many Japanese restaurant has it.
How to Order & EatIngredients of yaki sakana teisyoku and Kaisen don changes from day to day. Please ask staffs about today's fish. If you want to try to read Japanese characters, please check the paper which are taped on the back board. Today’s ingredients are written on it.
