Sushi restaurants and izakaya where you can enjoy seafood lunch

Sushi restaurants and izakaya where you can enjoy seafood lunch

Since we’re in Hokkaido, it’d be waste to eat seafood at a conveyor belt sushi restaurant and izakaya chains that can be found all over the country. But don’t worry! We have a solution for people who wants to enjoy a seafood lunch at a local restaurant for a reasonable price.


Raiden Sushi

“Raiden Sushi” was founded in 1970.
The store name “Raiden” comes from the Raiden coast, a place near Iwanai, a village located in the Shakotan Peninsula.
The Raiden coast is known for its Raiden watermelon, but it is also a region where the fishing industry is thriving and there are many landings of sea urchins, whelks, salmon, cod, etc.

The shop was started by a general from this area, so I think he is particular about the freshness and the quality of his ingredients.

When our writer goes to a sushi restaurant that isn’t a conveyor belt sushi, he usually order chirashizushi, which is more satisfying than the nigiri sushi set, but since he specially went to "Raiden sushi" for the first time ever, he ordered the “nigiri sushi set” at 1,190 yen.

Before the sushi, a soup and homemade herring pickles were served. This herring pickle seems to be a specialty of Raiden Sushi. It is delicious and makes you want to drink sake!

Our reporter went on September 2nd to Raiden, he was glad to be able to eat delicious herring pickles in autumn, since he is used to eat it in winter.

Raiden Sushi's lunch menu Nigiri sushi set has 8 pieces of nigiri sushi:
Salmon roe, herring roe, sweet shrimp, tuna, and salmon, and some maki sushi.
This is so luxurious that you wouldn’t think this is a 1,190 yen lunch set.

Another Raiden’s speciality, the tamagoyaki sushi ! This omelet sushi is filled with red bean paste. If you eat a bite without knowing this, you may be surprised. Because of the sweetness, you may prefer to eat it as a dessert. It truly is a masterpiece!

Izakaya Tenkin, the eastern Branch

"Izakaya Tenkin" in Higashi Asahikawa 1-2 Chome, commonly known as the Zoo Street, is often crowded with local customers during lunch time. Before the novel coronavirus infection (COVID-19) a lot of tourists came as well.

When he went last time, our reporter had a "sashimi set meal", so this time he tried a "bara chirashizushi” at 900 yen out. The extra serving of rice and miso soup refills are free.

The sea urchin & salmon roe bowl set for 2,400 yen, is our writer next target. For when he will be able to put some extra money in his food.

The Zoo Street is the Street right outside Asahiyama Zoo's entrance. Until now, we’ve introduced ramen shops, cafes and tearooms located on the Zoo Street. This time we want to present you 3 traditional Japanese restaurants.

The "bara chirashizushi" is beautifully arranged and worthy of a branch of Tenkin.

It was delicious!
Even as a small eater, Tora was able to eat all of it by himself. Big eaters may want to order a large serving of rice to be satisfied.

Makoto sushi

"Makoto Sushi" in Suehiro Higashi 1-jo 3-chome has a banquet service. This is a fairly large sushi restaurant. Both the tatami mat seats and the table seats are available for private rooms. You can enjoy a relaxing meal and sit the way you want.

Each room is named after an area of Asahikawa: "Nagayama", "Takasu" and “Akizuki".When you see that, you will somehow be drawn to choose the room with the same name as the area you live.

There are 7 lunch set at Makoto Sushi, including nigiri, chirashi, and zangi set meals, all of them are reasonably priced at 880 yen including tax.
Last time, our writer ordered a voluminous "chirashizushi" with a lot of seafood, but this time he ordered a "sashimi set meal".

Our reporter wants to try all lunch menus out! Five more times left.
