Try the signature menu item, the inkredible "Ikasama-don" squid bowl
Okiagari Shokudo is an eatery directly run by a local fisheries cooperative. Here, you can enjoy dishes made with Nishina Port's specialty—day-time-caught squid. Unlike normal squid fishing which is done at night under artificial lights, fishing for squid during the day involves catching those which come up to the sea surface naturally on their own. This fishing method causes less stress on the squid, and they taste richer and sweeter. The eatery's signature menu item is the "Ikasama-don". This inkredible bowl dish lets you have a taste of freshly caught flying squid and spear squid as sashimi and marinated. The glistening egg yolk in the center represents the famous Nishi-Izu sunset which is a sight to behold.
The "Ikasama-don" bowl is mostly offered with flying squid in summer and spear squid in autumn
