Expats or newcomers and tourists in Shizuoka City who wish to find better than average but still very reasonable sushi should have a good look at the sushi lunch sets on sale around lunch at Parche Market inside Shizuoka JR Station next to the fish stands!
All at the same 500 yen price, less than 5 US $ before tax, and still less than 5 US $ after tax!
A bargain even for Shizuoka people!
The same offer is on display at lunch time from Monday to Friday but make a point to come early to grab the best bits!
What did they offer today?
Note the fish all comes from the fish market next to the sushi food stands insuring maximum freshness! Incidentally it would be a good idea to have a good look at the same market to discover the wealth in seafood available in our region!
Kaisen bara chirashi: Mixed seafood sushi bowl! The fish is already seasoned atop sushi rice and you can ask for disposable chopsticks when you pay your purchase. Chirashi is very popular as you can sample many kinds of seafood in the same lunch box!
Tekkadon: tuna sushi bowl! Now, even in Tokyo you will be hard set to find such a bargain! Thanks to Shimizu Ku (Shizuoka City) and Yaizu harbor, tuna is available all year round in Shizuoka Prefecture at reasonable prices!
Yamakake: Tuna and grated yam sushi bowl! Now, this a Shizuoka specialty as grated yam dishes date back from Edo times! An acquired taste but very healthy!

Hoso maki tsumiawase: seven sushi roll combination! For the thin sushi rolls lovers! So practical and you can divide them among yourselves!
