Cormorants strut around the Japanese garden outside this café, where the specialty is ayu (sweetfish). The owner boasts of upholding the 1,300-year-old local ukai tradition, and the ayu are prepared every way imaginable. Most popular are ayu-zosui, a rice porridge, and ayu-no-narezushi, a kind of reverse sushi with the ayu stuffed full of rice. It is 1½ blocks west of Ryokan Sugiyama.
