I am an Australian who has been lucky enough to live in Mishima and Numazu for nearly 4 years. I was given the chance to sample some of the areas first restaurants and would like to share my experiences with you. I went to only Japanese style restaurants in the hope to introduce this unique, traditional and delicious style of restaurant to people from all over the world. This region is famous for all kinds of food ranging from seafood from the mysterious depths of Suruga Bay to rare mountain delicacies and the famous Ashitaka beaf.
