Mie's recommendation in winter is definitely oysters! If you wish to eat a stomachful of oysters, then you should go to Toba!! Take the prefectural road connecting Toba and Shima, ""Pearl Road Seaside Line"" and head south to Onoura-wan Bay, and you will get to the ""Oyster Road"". You will see ""oyster huts"" here and there with sign boards saying ""Oysters, all-you-can-eat"". During the oyster season from November to March, you will be able to eat plump and juicy oysters until your stomach is full and, despite that, the price is reasonable. Enjoy a really happy time eating a mouthful of oysters that are full of nutrition.
""Grilled oysters, all-you-can-eat"" requires reservation. It is very popular and reservation often becomes full quickly, so you need to be careful! Depending on the restaurant, they might serve you a meal set, free of additional charge, that has fried oysters or oyster rice and tsukudani (pickled salty seaweed), so you should check with the restaurant.
Year-end and the beginning of the year, for example.
Varies depending on the restaurant.
Access by public transportation
""Kamome Bus"" operates from Toba Bus Center in front of Toba Station. On weekdays, get on the bus headed for ""Ijikako"" and on Saturday, Sunday and holidays, get on the bus headed for ""Adakoguchi"". The bus stop you get off will vary depending on which restaurant you are going to.
