Izakaya “Tarajisabira” you eat fresh fish dish of fisherman’s town Itoman

It is izakaya (Japanese pub) where you can eat fresh fish dishes of Itoman City, a fisherman’s town, which is “Tarajisabira”. You can enjoy fresh seafood unique to Okinawa with delicious beer and awamori. It is a bright and safe izakaya that you can relax with children. Basically In Okinawa’s Izakaya you can enjoy meals with peace of mind even with children. Because okinawa family usually eat dinner with their childresn in izakaya. Therefore, you often see a family who is eating in a pub with small children.

On the first floor is a fresh fish store, and the second floor is a Izakaya. Because the first floor is a fresh fish store, we can have delicious fresh seafood from the Itoman Port. Okinawa folk songs and sound of Sanshin flow slowly in the restaurant, you can feel the atmosphere of Okinawa.
