Nagoyaka-tei

Sushidokoro Nagoyaka-tei (鮨処 なごやか亭) is a popular conveyor belt sushi chain store based in Kushiro city, and is one of the 3 major conveyor belt sushi chain restraunts together with Toriton (トリトン) and Nemuro Hanamaru (根室花まる) in Hokkaido.

Appearance of Building

My visited branch is Harutori Branch (春採店), the very first store, and is near Lake Harutori (春採湖). It is not the head office but the 1st branch. The appearance looks like just a typical Japanese restaurant chain. The building is large, and the interior decoration has an atmosphere such as a typical conveyor belt sushi chain store. Counter seats and table seats are provided, so I guess that even family customers enjoy meals.

    Sushi of Hokkaido

    Sushi is a rice dish using various types of ingredients such as raw seafood, and Hand-rolled Sushi (握り寿司) is most famous, and others are Rolled Sushi (巻きずし), Sushi Pocket (いなり寿司 * Inarizushi), Scattered Sushi (バラ寿司・ちらし寿司), Pressed Sushi (押し寿司), Izushi Fermented Sushi (飯寿し) and so on. In Japan, Fermented Sushi (なれずし) has been eaten since Nara Period, and old Japanese made sushi as a fermented food. In Edo Period, the Hand-rolled Sushi was born, and was popular with Edo people in Edo Castle Town. It was not a dish but a snack in those days. Since Meiji peropd, sushi using sashimi has become widespread in the Japan, and a bite-sized vinegared rice has become common. So the sushi refers to the Hand-rolled Sushi in a large number of cases.

    Conveyor Belt Sushi

    I visited here around 15:00 on a weekday. 2 groups of customers enjoyed their meals at this halfway hour. I sat a counter seat, and asked a sushi chef about sushi toppings caught in the Kushiro, and he replied me "Saury and whale". I have never known that a local specialty of Kushiro is the whale. I ordered those and the salmon roe gunkan sushi with scattered salmon roe as a famous for Nagoyaka-tei speciality.

    First a dish of the saury sushi and a dish of the whale sushi were served. The raw saury was not the best time of the year, but it was fatty fish, and was tasty! The color of the whale meat resembled beef jerky, and was light taste. I did not know the texture very much.

    After preparation time, the salmon roe gunkan sushi with scattered salmon roe was dished up in front of my eyes. Another man beated a drum, and the sushi chef dished up the salmon roe on the gunkan sushi with energetic voice shouting. It was an interesting event. That event can be watched on youtube movie. By the way, customers can accept the holding event or not, so please do not worry. Well, as for the salmon roe, it was just right seasoning without the fishy smell, not too salty, and was tasty!

    After I ate those, a dish of squid with salt and grated citron, a dish of seared flounder edge and a dish of seared sakhalin surf clam were served and were eaten up. The price was JPY 2590 in total. Still, the seared flounder edge was always tasty at all restraunts. I was stuffed. Thank you for the tasty meal.
