Claws emerging from a bed of fresh-cut crab and darkly gleaming red salmon eggs piled high on a bowl of rice are just two of the famous raw-fish options at this 50-year-old family restaurant in the middle of the noisy fish market. The omakase-don somehow gets eight kinds of fish into one bowl, although anyone hoping to still manage some sightseeing after lunch may prefer lighter dishes like three oysters on the half shell or grilled salmon (both ¥350). The menus
have plenty of pictures to make ordering easier. The place is just up the steps to the left of JR Otaru Station. Look for the yellow signs with black lettering.
