Restaurant details
Reviewed September 14, 2016 via mobile

We went here after checking into JR hotel. We were recommended to drive all the way back to Anbo for dinner because there was nothing good nearby. WRONG!! This little restaurant is a hidden gem. Walking in is like entering old Japan. Take your shoes off and go to sit on a cushion on the tatami floors and served by a delightful lady who I assume owns the place. She was gorgeous and helpful even though we don't speak Japanese and she doesn't speak English. The food came out quickly and was delicious. Fried flying fish was the star and a whole lot of smaller sides to accompany it. A great little find close to the hotel with no need to drive far away. If you don't go here while you stay at JR it's your loss!

Service is exceptional as the lady who serves you is lovely. She's smiley and seemed genuinely happy that we were dining there.

We had the flying fish set menu which was about 2600 YEN each. Flying fish is definitely something to try as its a speciality of the island and I thought it was nice. Rest of the meal was also good although we got some unidentifiable meat in a white pot which was awful. Very fatty and generally inedible - left us with the distinct impression that it was "leftover" meat. Otherwise, the bonito sashimi we got was really tasty (and generous portion) and the dessert was nice.

Overall would recommend this place for dinner.

I like eel - I found here a nice spot for it. It comes surrounded with side dishes all superb - it made a very nice meal - simple decor but authentic, The counter is a massive plank of wood... but what counts is in the plate !..Service is here as well.. all good, good..un bon moment...à table ! ! !

Went twice ! Must try their fried flying fish (600yen for a la carte) ! I tried their tonkatsu set for 1000yen, comes with rice and mini soba and other sides as well. Location is near JR hotel Yakushima. There's 4 Parking lots if you are driving. If no lots, park at nearby convenience store and walk abt 150 metres down.
Highly recommended !

The place is gorgeous, it is yet simple but very traditional and cosy! The food was really good and the service delightful. Last but not least it is insanely cheap for the quality offered. It was something around (1000 yens) 10 dollars for a full set!
