Yu – ki:traditional Japanese restaurant

Japan, Japanese, food, restaurant, tradition, traditional, historical

 Tsuwano is a must-see on any vacation in the Iwami region in Japan. This 'little Kyoto' of Shimane is bursting with shrines, and temples, traditional houses, museums, art galleries, and plenty of nice cafes and inns.

I went to “Yu-ki (遊亀)” to eat lunch. It is located near “Katsushika Hokusai museum.” It takes about 5~10 minutes from Tsuwano station. This restaurant has a quaint atmosphere and they serve traditional food. A small river flows through the restaurant, so the staff catch carp and trout from there and make a dish. You can eat very fresh fish!

And the restaurant displays traditional Japanese things. If you want to enjoy a quaint atmosphere and traditional foods, I recommend “Yu-ki(遊亀)”!
