We walked past it a couple of times so I need to tell you it's easy to miss! Lovely food. English menu 'set' with a large variety of fish/meat dishes.

We dined in this restaurant on trhe recommendation of the TI on the first evening of our Yakushima stay. The service was great, and we enjoyed one of the best - if not the best - tempura meals we have ever eaten (and this includes places like the Ten-ichi in Tokyo and Kyoto)! Recommended!

Had the baked flying fish it was a bit salty, had to have it with rice. The fried flying fish tasted good but have to be careful about the bones.

Nice and big meal with lots of small side dishes. Feel healthy and very tasty. I could never finished completely because of its size.

In the main street this pleasant lively place serves huge set menus for 1,000-2,000 yen. You'll be full so don't order any extras. We tried grilled fish, fried meat, tonkatsu all tasty. There were lots more options on the Japanese menu probably bar food.
