FUN SUPERMARKET full of mystery (I can't read Japanese) fruits, vegies, freshly-dead fishes, non-perishables, but also identifiable smoked eel, seaweed, Japanese flavors of ice cream, kitchen dishes and utensils, and a refrigerated deli counter from which one can choose boxed dishes (such as smoked eel on rice with seaweed strips and a packet of soy sauce) ranging from snack size to dinner size to share. On weekend days, there is often a table at the entrance where an employee offers tastes of a prepared product, such as instant miso soup, or the seaweed and other flavoring to mix with Japanese rice, or... Japanese beer!
FUN FOOD COURT with 4 different counters, each with a glass window full of plastic food labeled with what it is and a number (so you can order #43 or whatever).
HANNOSUKE tempura seafood mix (2 shrimp, fish, sweet potato, etc.) on rice (see photo): the shrimp was cooked perfectly, neither over- or undercooked, but I thought the breading tasted oily and I didn't like that the breaded shrimp was limp, not stiff. My husband said that the other half of the same shrimp was the best shrimp he'd ever eaten.
SANUKI SANDOU noodle soup (see photo) was good. A few days later we tried the pair of fried fish cakes; it was fine if you like fish cakes, i.e., a solid slab of firm white fish stuff, breaded and deep fried. It must be made from fish flesh that ground and shaped. I prefer real fish.
There are lots of other dishes I want to go back and try!
