Thanks to my friends, I could visit Sushi Hashimoto again. Once in a month !
But, finally, we couldn’t reserve next time at that time 🙁
The reservation was full for another two months.

月1鮨はしもとの会ヽ(`▽´)/ 来月は予約がいっぱいでいけません!(T_T)

The shop curtain has changed. The orange curtain looks warm.

Hashimoto’s otsumami can’t be eaten without sake ! The staff chose this Ishizuchi (石鎚) for me.
Ishizuchi is a place in Ehime prefecture and this is one of the place that I want to visit someday. So, I was glad that he chose it 🙂

Otoshi was Kinukatsugi (きぬかつぎ). Kinukatsugi is unpeeled boiled taro. Do you know it? I didn’t know.
This was the first time to eat it. I had no idea how to eat it. My friend next me showed me how to eat. Its peel was easily removed by

With it. Soy sauce and filefish’s innards mixed altogether well.
Of course, the filefish was enough delicious without it, this sauce was splendid and I didn’t want to leave one drop of it !

Kobako-gani (Female crab, 香箱蟹)
Kobako-gani is female crab that caught in Ishikawa fishing port area from November 6th to December 29th only.Though it is small crab and don’t have much meats, it has plenty of eggs and those are great.

I ate two female crabs called seiko-gani caught in Sakaiminato area of Tottori in the daytime before Sushi Hashimoto. And I ate again. But I never got tired of eating it 🙂

Well, last otsumami was as same as usual, grilled fish.
That day’s grilled fish was Japanese butterfish(えぼ鯛). As its name, so fatty fish as you see.
