Hamamatsu Station 

[Yamamoto-tei (Doman Crab)]

Experience the taste of rare "doman crab" (mud crab) steamed with sake

Though only small quantities of the rare "doman crab" are caught, they are familiar to local people as a specialty of Hamamatsu. They are distinguished among the various kinds of crabs by their particularly rich flavor. From summer through to winter, the market is enlivened with female crab packed with meat and which tend to be carrying eggs. Both "Yamamoto-tei" and "Tasuke", its sister restaurant, offer produce from Lake Hamana, and their "doman crab" is carefully selected by the owners, steamed simply with sake, and served. How about combining a taste of this rare, aromatic delight with sightseeing around Hamamatsu?
