Isabaya is located beside the fishing port of Ohara, and offers a variety of fresh seafood dining options. Their locally caught ise-ebi (Japanese spiny lobster) is served in miso soup, grilled right on the table, and even served raw, as Isabaya is one of the rare places in Japan where you can get ise-ebi sashimi. Isabaya also offers local favorites like amberjack and red snapper, in addition to other seafood options.

 Helpful Tips

September is the peak harvest season for ise-ebi, but the ise-ebi in winter is known being the best tasting. Their tako-meshi (octopus rice dish) is also a winter favorite, and is said to have a slight lobster flavor since the octopus in the Ohara fishing grounds feast on the local lobster during the winter.
