Uo means fish and damashii (tamashii) means soul. As can be expected from restaurant’s name, Uodamashii is one of the best seafood restaurants in the city. In front of the restaurant’s entrance, menu and prices are written on the wooden boxes in Japanese, and so you can check it from outside too.
The restaurant is located not far from Hamada station, so you can go there from the station in 6 or 7 minutes going the southeast on foot. You can see its small wooden appearance on the corner next to Japanese style confectionary store. Leave the station and go straight along the road with kagura statues. You’ll pass a small department store called Iwataya. Cross the road and keep going straight. You’ll see a white-washed chimney of a sake factory. Uodamashi is across the road from that, next to the confectionary store. Look for the wooden frontage and wooden crates outside.
Inside the restaurant is little bit narrow with a bar counter for seating but there is also a big table seats for 6 or 7 as well as the counter seats.
