“Beauty and Crabs!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2013

We travelled to Heda by car when going on a road trip to Izu peninsula. It is a little bit out of the way being on the west coast and you really need a car to get there.

It is one of the prettiest spots and a complete natural harbour with the sand spit almost enclosing the bay. Because it is close to the deep sea trench to the immediate west it is primarily a fishing port and seafood restaurants are the go with large spider crabs and kinmedai, the red deep sea fish with the big eyes that taste delicious.

We had planned to go to a distinctive green-painted restaurant by the dock which we had seen on the internet and although we found it easily we were way before opening time for lunch.

Looking for a place to park we found a small supermarket and parked in their carpark. We popped in for a look around and discovered they had cooked leg meat of the spider crab for sale in cling-wrapped small packs in their deli. We bought a pack for 220Y, just over $2! Also got some sliced bread, salt and a lemon and headed out to the sand bar which wraps around the harbour and found a picnic table there and made some crab sandwiches and ate them in a picture-perfect spot with Mt. Fuji right there. They were so delicious and sweet that we doubled back for another serve to the supermarket.

Then we travelled up over Heda Pass inland and looking back had the best view of Heda.
