Local Specialty Kagoshima
Quick-seared bonito is served as an otsukuri (selection of sashimi). Enjoy it dressed with a citrus-based sauce and grated Japanese radish flavored with pickled ume plums. The appetizer features silver-stripe round herring, which is as popular as bonito in Kagoshima. The small, silver-striped fillets are refreshing both to the eye and to the palate.
