Reservation is necessity

I heard it is very popular Japanese traditional foods restaurant and it is really hard to reserve, especially at lunchtime because they accept only four groups at a time.
And they have inexpensive lunch course, compared to dinner course.

We couldn’t reserve at first, but fortunately, there’s cancellation two days before the day.

We asked to the staff about the reservation next lunch and she said to us that they have full reservation until six month ahead.

At lunchtime, they prepare two courses. 3000 yen and 5000 yen (excluded in service fee and consumption tax).
We ordered 5000 yen course.

After we entered the restaurant, the staff took us to table.
All tables are separated like room.

At first, tea and dried beans were served. Their course consists of seasonal dishes.

Next, Sakitsuke (先附) (Appetizer) with face mask.
Face mask can’t be eaten. And this gold sake cup had non-alcoholic yuzu drink as aperitif. It was sweet.

Assorted sashimi (お造り) was served.
Gasu shrimp (gasu ebi), yellowtail (Buri), neon flying squid (Aka ika) and marbled rockfish (Kasago).

Gasu shrimp is caught in Hokuriku area like Ishikawa and Fukui only. And it can’t be eaten in another region because it lose its freshness soon.
