Ayu Garden is a famous corner of Nagomi. The fish we sell are farmed sweetfish from Lake Biwa. To make the fish as close to their natural state as possible, they are left to swim in the Tanigawa pond that flows into the Yura River for 1-2 weeks to tighten up their flesh. Once an order is placed, the sweetfish are skewered one by one and grilled with salt on a grill. You can savor the toasty aroma and taste of the sweetfish hot off the grill. There is also a space where you can catch sweetfish. Ayu Garden is fully equipped with BBQ facilities, so you can enjoy a BBQ with your family and friends without having to bring anything with you! We have a wide selection of meat, vegetables, and more. You can also just purchase pre-grilled salted sweetfish if you want! Make it an unforgettable summer memory.
