Did you know Itoshima is the largest producer of red snapper in Japan? It’s true. So what better dish to try on your next visit than tai chazuke (red snapper on rice covered in tea.) While available at countless restaurants around Itoshima, nowhere offers the million-dollar panoramic seaside view of Keya Golf Club.
The dish requires some self-preparation. First place thin slices of Genkai red snapper sashimi dressed in a house-made sesame sauce (made with local soy sauce and sake) onto warm rice. Then pour on green tea, cover for a minute, and dig in! The set (¥2,410) includes a side dish, pickles, and fresh fruit. It’s ideal for between rounds of golf or sightseeing. Reservations and smart-casual dress recommended.
