YAHATAYA


The attractiveness of Ishinomaki does not only belong to its new ideas, but also to its rich history. Akio and I had a lunch at Yahataya, Japanese eel kappo restaurant who has been in business since 1913. They were struck by the 311 earthquake and tsunami, but beautifully renovated and reborn at the same location. Nothing can stop Ishinomaki traditions.
石巻は新しいアイデアだけでなく、その豊かな歴史も魅力的。アキオと一緒にランチに寄ったのは、大正2年創業の老舗うなぎ割烹「八幡家」さん。この店は311の震災と津波の被害を受けたが、同じ場所で美しく改修され、復活した。何ものも石巻の伝統を止めることはできない。

Their signature unaju (eel and rice) is perfect for a hot summer day.
絶品うな重。暑い夏の日に最高。
