Do you want to eat your fill of Oysters? Then, let’s go to Toba-city in Mie Pref.
In Uramura, Toba-city in Mie Prefecture, the beautiful coastline with its sea spreading out in front of you will surely enliven you. Uramura is famous for their oyster culture. There are many oyster houses that offer them in a variety of ways. You can casually enjoy 1 oyster or eat as many as you want for a fixed price. They prepare oysters in ways such as grilled oysters, steamed oysters, raw oysters, fried oysters, oysters on rice, and oysters in miso soup.
Grill your own Oysters and fill your stomach!
My recommendation for eating oysters here is to grill your own oysters on site. Grilling them will increase the pleasant savory taste (umami) and will bring out their simple sweetness and plump texture that I’m sure you will enjoy! As a big eater, I would definitely recommend the more appealing, “all you can eat” option!
It’s absolutely exhilarating to eat your fill of ocean-fresh oysters while experiencing the scent of the salty wind.
※Tabehodai or, “all you can eat oysters,” is offered for a limited time only between November to March. 2,500 yen to 2,800 yen is the cost.
What is so special about Oysters in Uramura?
Uramura-cho has been proud of its Oyster culture with a history of about 70 years.
This area is ideal for raising oysters because of the warm seawater flowing from Ise Bay. This water is also rich in plankton and is a mixed with the nutritious river water flowing from the nearby mountains. It’s a gift of nature in Ise-Shima. Please try to visit Toba-city if you want to enjoy the beautiful sea area with its winter gourmet, Oysters. I usually drop by on my way home after visiting Ise-jingu Shrine. I definitely recommend it!
