I ate lunch in the Okajoki. As can be seen from the design of the shop, and shops featuring the railway was, you bought the ticket at the ticket counter just inside first. System in the store and then wait for the dishes.

Meal of grilled fish and rice and miso soup. Pickles you give your self-service to it. This simple menu is 900 Yen. However, it is also a popular shop at the store when the store is lunch it fills up quickly, a certain quality of fish that are supported.

This time, I taked a mackerel.


That left the impression to others is miso soup. Addition and subtraction of dashi and miso is exquisite, and even perfect heat. Merely paint, not too hot or say. The case of Japanese food, and especially delicious miso soup, and chopsticks extra proceeds.

It was the reflection this time, to choose the season also. The timing, it is not even taste of fish, the food comes out. Selection of eye together who have been to be sure, the spring herring are recommended. Of course, there is no doubt but also other fish.
