Must see sights
Fresh Sashimi meal set
The cafeteria staff recommended us the Sashimi meal set. Sashimi is a Japanese dish of bite-sized pieces of raw fish. The price is 1200 yen which is a little expensive but they purchased from the shops on the 1st floor everyday, so the fish they use are all fresh. The Sashimi fish will be different day by day. This day, it was Maguro(Tuna), Octopus, Squid, Salmon, irabicha(Okinawan blue fish), Northern shrimp and Akamachi(Etelis). Miso soup, rice and pickles comes with a meal set. Miso soup has clams. First, we thought the price is a little expensive, but after the dish came, We realized It was worth it!
Stir-fry Agu pork with ginger meal set
Okinawan pork Agu is made with Stir-fry Agu pork with ginger meal set. Rice and seaweed soup comes with the set. Stir-fry Agu pork with ginger comes with a stone plate. The sizzling sound makes you even more hungry! The Okinawan made Agu pork has a little sweetness and with ginger savory matches great with the rice! If you don't really know if you like ginger, try it! The Wakame seaweed soup which came with the dish was also very delicious! The light and sophisticated flavor was very good!
Makishi Public Market
Makishi Public Market was opened in 1951. The market back the was called the "Resident's kichen" and helped with postwar events.

The appeal of Dotonbori

We asked a staff member at the Dotonbori some questions, he said that Doronbori's fish comes from the fish shops on the 1st floor, so they are always very fresh! There are some couples and friends who order the Tacorice & Okinawa soba set or Tacorice & Soki soba set and share it. The biggest reason is its affordable price!
