The aroma that rises the cooking eel is mouthwatering.


 

Oyster (カキ)

Hiroshima is Japan’s leading oyster producing area and the 
oyster that come out of Hiroshima are popular for their 
delicious flavor. They are generally eaten raw or grilled but 
we also recommend you try the Oyster Dote hotpot, in which 
a sweet miso paste is gradually blended in to the stock.
