It was the first time to visit this restaurant for me, so before we went here, this shop sounded so good because of fishing. But it was a little bit noisy in this restaurant, so we had to speak louder than usual and we ordered...More

『 Let's enjoy fishing 』 Fished by yourself is an exceptional taste. Still eat fish fishermen landed on the ship! It is a restaurant you can experience such presence! If you catch the fish yourself, it's cheaper!? We can fish for our own fish and eat it fresh at a discount price. We hope you will use this system to enjoy fishing and eating fresh, flavorful fish!
