A homey restaurant with many selections operated by an owner who loves Sado
Hiroshi Taira, the founder of the national izakaya chain of Shoya opened this restaurant/accommodation facility in his home of Sado Island in 2015. With a selection of local foods and fresh fish such as just-picked yellowtail and tuna, Sashisuseso boasts cuisine which fully brings alive ingredients nurtured within the great outdoors of Sado including seasonally-caught fish, rice, and vegetables. In the restaurant opened as a place for the local community, there are not only tables but also a tatami area for guests to relax so that it has also become popular with the area’s residents.
A wealth of seafood ranging from the freshest sashimi to processed foods
The jewel of Sashisuseso is its seafood. Sashimi courses based on the selection of seasonally-caught fish, stewed fish, grilled fish and rice topped with fish are the specialties. Dishes using Sashisuseso’s original seafood products are also popular, and there is a truly unique menu of rice bowl dishes topped off with fish hamburger and menchi-katsu (ground meat cutlet) made from fish. This can also be suggested even for people who ordinarily don’t like raw fish. You can also find light meals including soba, udon and ramen along with local Sado sake.
Plenty of accommodations including log houses in the middle of nature
Within the large grounds of Sashisuseso, there are 2 types of accommodation facilities: log houses and an auto camp. There are 5 log houses, each completely equipped for 8 people or 6 people with kitchen, bath and toilet. The auto camp is separated into 14 areas which also have bathing, toilet and washing facilities, along with rental BBQ sets. In the communal space, there is a coin-operated laundry which is very handy during long stays. And just a 5-minute walk away from the grounds, there is the Hajikizaki Lighthouse. The view from there has a commanding and lovely view of the ocean as far as the eye can see.
