Oysters came from many place ! (Tsukiji)

I thought that the best season of oysters is winter, but I learned that we can eat both Crassostrea nippona and Pacific oyster at “Oyster bar” all year around.
That’s great !

Of course, my first oyster bar stands in Tsukiji 🙂
I had wanted to go to the shop. I’m very happy that my wish came true.

Chika-no-iki
Signboard, Chika-no-iki (Tsukiji)

“Chika” means underground in Japanese. As its name, the shop is on the underground in a building.
It never seems “Oyster bar”. It looks like izakaya under the guardrail in Shinbashi 😛

Anyway, we sat down and ordered our drinks. My drink was Japanese sake. Though I forgot its name (because I got drunk heavily), it was tasty.

At Chika-no-iki, we can eat oysters that caught in many places.
That day, oysters came from Otsuchi, Kashimanada, Noshiro, Choshi, Tsurumi, Amano Hashidate, Ise Shima and so on.

But first of all, you should order this set 🙂
