Walking on Drift Ice
This traditional inn's selling point is cuisine featuring Wakasa fugu raised by the proprietor in the sea nearby. Here you can enjoy fugu dishes with volume and quality you could only find here in the heart of fugu country. The centerpiece of the Wakasa fugu full course is the grilled fugu, with each thick slice seared over charcoal. In the colder months the pieces even dance before you on the plate. On top of that, you can look forward to a bounty of treats such as Tessa, Tecchiri, deep-fried cuts, and fresh local fish made into boat-wrap sushi. Of course, parboiled skin and zosui are also on offer. In winter, Wakasa oysters steamed in an earthenware pot are included as well.
