One of the best winter food: Oyster restaurant

For winter season food,  Tango region is known for crab and yellow-tail that I already described in this blog. BUT, there is another winter seafood which is getting popular to eat in Tango region among Japanese tourists is, oyster. The oyster from Tango region is quite famous as one of the best taste oyster in Japan. There are many accommodation in Tango offers oyster for dinner. On my blog, I will write a place where you can eat at a cabin with BBQ style without reservation.

A few side dishes which using oyster and drinks are available to order with additional cost. Reservation not necessary.
