Hana Tateyama Sohonten

Established in 1965, Hana Sohonten is a Japanese restaurant that offers superbly fresh seafood prepared using fish caught locally. It serves sushi, sashimi, tempura as well as local fisherman’s cuisine such as “Namerou” — fish tartare flavored with miso and other seasonings — and is popular among the locals and tourists alike.

It is also one of the dining establishments that offers “Aburi kaisen-don” (literal translation: broiled seafood bowl), a specialty dish of Tateyama city. It is served in a three-level stacking container, with each level packed with various local seafood and vegetable dishes, some pre-cooked, some to be eaten raw (such as sushi and sashimi) and some to be grilled or broiled at the table.
