Kimura Suisan | Fish Store in Ishikari

Ishikari is a coastal town, about 40 mins away from Sapporo.
After visiting a popular bakery, which is famous for stone hearth-baked bread,

we dropped by a small fish shop near the turbines.
(If you're interested in the bakery & pizza restaurant, please refer to my previous post→click!)

"Kimura Suisan" is located in front of the ocean.

I've never seen or eaten "sandfish pickled in salted rice-bran paste"! I instantly liked it and bought it!

How about this?? This is "Atka mackerel pickled in salted rice-bran paste". They have a lot of kinds of fish pickled in rice-bran paste!!!!

This is "herring DEEPLY pickled in salted rice-bran paste". They said this is a little bit salty and should be used for soup and Ocyazuke; a bowl of rice with green tea.

This is "herring LIGHTLY pickled in salted rice-bran paste".  Just grill and eat it! This is one of the most popular fish in this shop!

I like this service. They can keep your products until their closing hour so that we can fully enjoy the  beach nearby without worrying about the fish!!! They also serve free ice cubes!!

Look at the Nameta flounder!!! It's very big! Of course all of the fish is caught in the ocean in front of the shop! I love the dried overnight fish!!

This is (dried overnight) Sohacu flounder!  Look at the price tag! Just 1,000 yen for five flounder!!!

I bought this dried overnight herring. It supposed to be 300 yen for five herring, but they gave me extra two fish! 300yen for seven herring !!! This is a good buy!

After enjoying the shopping in this shop, we went to a big fish market, bought a lot of alive shako (mantis prawn),  and quickly went home.

Immediately arriving at home, I boiled the shako and enjoyed it! Yummy!!!!

Some of it was char-grilled like this↓


We also enjoyed abalone!!

Do you want to join our seafood party??? All of the fish was caught in Ishikari.
