I'm embarrassed to say that during our 5 days in Yakushima, we ate here three times!
...But it was delicious and we had to load up on fresh, quality sushi before heading home to Canada!
Our server was so friendly and outgoing. She was patient (as we used our very broken Japanese) and took the time to explain what we were eating with her picture book and genuinely seemed interested in practicing her English with us.
We tried the local sushi and sashimi sets, the kamenotes, the flying fish, and the small fish tempura (I can't remember the name but they were excellent)! The "shibi" (baby tuna) was always our favourite - but it was all so, so good. We loved the Yakushima-style soy sauce and the local ginger cocktail too!
Please enjoy a meal here when you are visiting -- you won't be disappointed.

We had a very good meal at this izakaya, they serve several delicious local specialities and prices are quite affordable.
Not much English is spoken by the staff by they do all they can to help you out, and they do have an helpful English menu. Definitely recommended

We ate here one evening recently and it was a reasonably good quality meal.

It wasn't the best restaurant we ate at on Yakushima, but certainly pretty good.

We ate better fried flying fish elsewhere, but the flying fish sashimi was delicious.

Good value too, the prices are very fair.

This place has delicious karage, very crispy and big pieces and for an additional price you can make it a set to get tofu, miso soup and rice. The restaurant opened a bit early just so we can have dinner there. Excellent service
