It was my second time to go Suganoya Kamidori. The raw meat is soft, juicy, gummy, good-flavor, and creamy. You have to reserve the seat before you go for sure. Sushi, and rare-grilled BBQ are also "must-eat". Around JPY 20000 1.5 hour-dinner for 4 people, with some beer and grasses of alcohols. Good C/P value for this quality.

Horse meat is a must try in Kumamoto! There is horse steak, horse meat humbug and horse meat sashimi. All tastes lovely! It is not as scary as you think. We enjoyed it very much!!
