Satoumian 海女小屋資料館 さとうみ庵

Here at Satoumian, visitors can sample freshly caught seafood grilled over charcoal by a real Ama and have the chance to ask them questions about their experience working as one. Ama are traditional Japanese deep sea divers historically known for collecting pearls and catching seafood, a practice that is over 2,000 years old. There are currently 750 estimated Ama residing in this area. Here at this restaurant, seating is called "horigotatsu" or where there is a large space in front of the bench to place your legs with a small table for eating in front of you. In the middle of the table is where the Ama will charcoal grill the seafood in front of the customers. Try everything from turban shell, squid, octopus, etc. with traditionally cooked rice.

If you're lucky, you just might see the Ama diving as you enjoy a meal in the hut.

【ACCESS】 Bus from Ugata Station to Azurihama Bus Station(Bound to Gozako), then walk 3 minutes.

Hours Lunch 11:00~14:00 Dinner 18:00~20:00
