Though they serve soft-shelled turtle mainly, they also serve various dishes that have great ingredients if you reserve in advance. Only 10 seats there. The chef and his wife manage the restaurant.

Kuruma prawn, bonito, sea urchin and red sea bream (車海老・かつお・うに・真鯛)
The Kuruma prawn was still moving ! Though it already dead, its sell was still moving.
It was moving harder than expected, so I couldn’t eat well :p

After finished eating ingredients of the hotpot, the lady cooked rice porridge made from the soup in the hotpot in front of us.
Needless to say, it had moving tastes. The soup had much extracts of red sea bream and vegetables.
