Followed the map to this place. Map from hotel was pretty accurate. Arrived just before 6.30pm and the place was filling up fast on a Tuesday evening. It is at the end of the Ginza shopping street and Nagarekawadouri St. There were only 6 counter chairs and 5 were taken. My husband has long legs and reconstructed knees so he... More

Wow, this place is amazing. A tiny restaurant, with traditional Japanese sitting on the ground and a few chairs by the counter. They don't have English menu but there are enough pictures to get by. We took the sashimi bowl at 980 yen, the one with some salmon caviar (Ikura) on top - the sashimi was so delicious, and the... More

Everything is right. So fresh fish, you can almost see your fish swimming in the small basins next to the entrance. So modest and friendly people. Also sidedishes, that belong to the menu, as tahu, misosoup are excellent and so fresh, we had nowhere before. And open on the sunday we visited the restaurant. Only hard to find. So, go... More

Try Kaisendon teishoku 海鮮丼定食 - 1058¥. It's super delicious and worth your money <3. The raw fish is fresh, their homemade sauce is one of a kind. Highly recommended.

We stayed at Beppu for 2 nights (13-14 April) and decided to go out for dinner by ourselves for some sashimi. Followed Tripadvisor review for a short walk from our ryokan through a long arcade we arrived at the restaurant roughly in 10 minutes. Restaurant was quite small, but staffs were very friendly, though some were not able to speak... More

Not elder friendly as second floor is rather steep. Had to beg fellow customers to give up leaning chair father. Excellent food, but recommend reservation on Tuesday to Saturday since they were out of most by Sunday. Reserve seats for 1st floor if when with elders

Found this after navigating the neighbourhood. Great food at decent prices. They don't speak English and there was no English menu. Struggled to order, then found that the part-time staff there is a Japanese speaking lady from China whom we can converse with easily. Pay with cash only. Food was excellent, the best we had in Beppu. We were fortunate... More

Got there at 11:30 and there were already 5 groups ahead of us. Had the lunch special, which was a chirashi don set with about 8 kinds of sashimi in it. It was so good and fresh. Also, had the fish balls and veggie soup for The kids. Broth was clear and had a great flavor. Service was quick and... More

This place is frequented by locals-- with sashimi being the most popular item. Husband ordered a sashimi set (1500 yen) and I ordered the chicken tempura ..a regional specialty. It was quite edible and with two beers and a chu hi -came in at less than 4,000 yen (for two of us). Very casual --so if you are looking for... More
