Devising your own sushi meal at Shizuoka JR Station Parche Department Store!
Due to the incredible wealth of fresh fish all year round, there is an enormous consumption of sushi at every level in Shizuoka City, from very cheap takeouts to expensive ( but certainly not as expensive as in Tokyo, qulity fro quality!) sushi restaurants.
Next time you come to Shizuoka City for a few days and are looking forward to budget sushi do visit the local department stores where you will have the surprise to discover tasty, from reasonably fresh to very fresh, and reasonably priced sushi sets, bentos and takeouts you can take beck to the hotel or into a park for instant pleasure.
Naturally I would advise the foreign (and Japanese) residents to do some homework!
As for prices count 100 yen for 1 US $ or 130 yen for 1 Euro!
As promised in Part 1 I will take you next to another part of Shizuoka JR Station Parche Department Store. It is actually the first part of the market you can enter from inside the station. It is replete with all kinds of food to take out from Chinese to oden and of course sushi!
In that particular part of the supermarket sushi are sold by Uogashi Sushi Restaurants Chain Company which hails from Numazu City in the Eastern part of Shizuoka Prefecture.
One of their attractions is that offer individual sushi nigiri all individually wrapped!
There are loads to choose from and I can tell you you will have a hard time choosing form them!
They also offer very reasonable (580 yen) shirashi donburi you can take home or to the office right away!
Kohaku Donburi/Red and White Donburi!
A combination you will probably never see away from japan: steamed shirasu/sardine whitebait and grated tuna (raw)! A delicacy!
At 500 yen, a giveaway! Mind you shirasu is a Shizuoka specialty!
Tokujyo Mizore Donburi.
At only 780 yen, another giveaway including crab, sea urchin and raw tuna served as chirashi sushi!
Temaki sushi! hand-made sushi “roll” conceived in a conical form easy to handle and eat!
Prepared and sold individually!
For a closer look!
Priced between 140 and 220 yen.
Note that the nori/dry seaweed is kept dry!
Tappuri (a lot) anago (conger eel) donburi!
At 980 yen it is still a bargain considering the spiraling prices. The fact that is a Shizuoka-bred fish does help!
The broiled fish is very soft and a real delicacy!
Next I will take you to Matsuzakaya Department store just across from Shizuoka JR Station
