Attracting building having picture of sardines.

As for sardines, I remember grilled whole dried sardines above all. Sashimi, and oiled sardines in bottles. That’s all. I didn’t know another way of cooking.

There is an izakaya that specializes in sardines dishes in Chiba.
This wall create an atmosphere of port town 🙂
