“地酒地肴” Izakaya is a well known neighbourhood, Japanese bar hanging out at night in Aomori. My first time to try Hoya (Sea Pineapple) in raw which they served it with some vinegar and seasonal veggie. Guests next to me told me Hoya is good for men and may help sexual arousal like oyster, anyway, the taste is so fishy and salty. Once in a life time is pretty good enough.
Wide range of seafood choices in the menu coz Aomori City is located nearby the sea, however, bamboo shoot is the most eye-ball attractiveness item.
