海の京都

A wealth of ingredients and food culture nurtured by sea and land

The Tango region is blessed with fertile waters and land, and there are various legends and myths here regarding the origins of Japanese food. Tax documents from the Nara Period show that red rice (an ancient variety), salmon, and other foods were transported from Tango to Heiankyo. Here you can enjoy nationally renowned seafood and vegetables, from Taiza crab, Iwagaki oyster, winter yellowtail and others, to meat, rice, vegetables, and dairy products.
