Dojo fish in Asakusa

Next time you are looking for a culinary experience in Tokyo, I suggest this one. This restaurant in Asakusa is specialized in Dojo, a cute little fish that lives in ponds and rivers of Japan.

River fish have a reputation of tasting more muddy than their saltwater counterpart (like those used in sushi), but with proper cooking can be delicious as well. I’ve heard those little dojo loaches are cooked in sake and become quite drunk before leaving this world, that might just be as well the reason they taste so good!

Plenty of locals from grandpa’s to families eat there: I think you should go as well!

Gaijin San

Since my better half is Japanese I often have the chance to travel to Japan. I grew fond over time of this magnificent country. I thought of sharing with you some places worth visiting in this little but growing travel guide to Japan. I try to show with images what I can't express with words. I hope you may find here some inspiration! For those who wonder, I chose the moniker Gaijin-San after being called like this by a waitress at a grilled eel restaurant. "Gaijin" means foreigner and "San" is a honorific suffix in Japanese.
