Bento Lunch at Meshiya Mizu in Shuzenji, Izu Ciy, Izu Peninsula, Shizuoka Prefecture!

Service: Shy but very kind
Equipment and facilities: very clean overall. Excellent washroom
Prices: Reasonable
Strong points: bento lunch and Japanese traditional lunches!

Although Shuzenji is increasingly becoming an international touristic spot locals still have many places tucked away from the crowd where they can still enjoy authentic traditional Japanese cuisine left alone by modern trends.
Such a place is Meshiya Mizu!
Actually Meshiya means eatery in Ja0anese!

They are open only at lunch and serve basically two types of set lunches, although a good look at the menu might entice you to something else!
One is a bento style lunch with boxed lunch and side dishes!

The great majority of vegetables and other ingredients are local!

Traditional Japanese dessert!

The other set is based on soba/buckwheat noodles, a very popular offering with the locals!

Local vegetables!

So healthy!

Enjoy!

Sushi Dinner at Miyako Sushi in Shizuoka City!

Service: Very friendly and informative.
Equipment & facilities: old but very clean. Traditional but clean Japanese washroom
Prices: Reasonable
Strong points: great products, local and from all over japan. Great sake list.

in Shizuoka City, you do not need to be near the sea to find great sushi and fish products. The latter probably follow you along your trips!
The other day I was invited by a local regular fr dinner at Miyako Sushi on the other side of the Abe River and as far as Abeguchi Shinden, in the middle of the country, not far from the tea fields.
Miyako Sushi is what you call a true traditional country sushi restaurant.
No pretense here. The marine products a top-class and the selection of sake a discovery!
And most customers are local so you know you are coming to a great place, maybe old fashioned but so laid back!
Not only sushi,and sashimi but also cooked food await you there!

Superlative “Nanbu Bijin” sake from faraway Iwate Prefecture!
Check with the staff as the sake list tends to change quickly!

O-toshi/snack served with first drink, featuring otaru ika/lucciolla squid!

Traditional kappa maki/cucumber roll for the kid among us!

first superb sashimi selection!

Deep fried kuro hanpene/sardine paste cake and kisu/sillago!

A rare sake, Sawa no I for Tokyo of all places!

The second superb sashimi selection!

Grilled shishamo/literally leaf fish! A typical Japanese specialty!

Sushi nigiri galore!

And instead of dessert we had Chyawanmushi/Japanese salted hot pudding!

Go and explore the country along the Abe River! Surprises await for you there!
