4 days in Japan -05/19/ - 5/23-2018

Day 2-Kamakura-5/20/2019


There are so many things to see in Kamakura but before taking a bus to visit the Tsurugaoka Hachimangū the most famous Shinto shrine in Kamakura we need to fill our stomach first.

We did not have any plan for lunch but as we are walking to the bus station to get to our next destination, we saw this small shop just facing the street.  We looked inside,  saw that it was really clean and it was run by a husband and wife. The whole restaurant can probably only sit less than 8 people.  Not sure how they can make money as it is such a small shop.


We put our orders in and the chef is working on our dishes.


Cutting the fish...


Platting the dishes...


Local beer from Kamakura for Hoa.


Hoa ordered rice with small fish, it came with a simple soup, a salad and also a red bean sweet cake for dessert.


Close look at the dish.


I went with an assortment of raw fish with rice.


There is no table in this restaurant, only counter top wrapping around the kitchen.


Bon appetit!



We really lucked out for finding this small shop.  The food was so delicious.

I know that you are not supposed to give them a tip in Japan but we did and since they are not used to getting any tips, the bowed to us and thanked us (they did not speak English).

I forgot to take a picture of the store front so I don't even know the name of this little shop.
