Tasting local food is one of the key elements when it comes to travel. It would also be great if the food is delicious, cheap and cheerful, the restaurant opens till late and is conveniently located. Iwasaka in Aeon Mall probably probably just meet all those criteria.
It is one of the popular sushi bars conveniently located in Aeon Mall which is about 10 minutes walk from JR Okayama station. Of course there is an underground connection so that you wouldn’t have to worry about the weather. The prices of the sushi dishes ranged from ¥180 (HK$13) to ¥580 (HK$43). Many are around ¥300 (HK$22), including the steamed oysters sushi, Sakura sushi, and the massive sushi roll that I ordered. The assorted 3 kinds of seasonal raw fish sushi was ¥380 (HK$28). There are more locals than tourists which is a good sign for now. Check it out if you are visiting Okayama.
This is not an advertisement! I have been to the restaurant a couple of time when I travelled to Okayama. It is just easy.
