We had a private dining room with truly outstanding service. Yet for the price of the Shizuka seven course, set price meal (12960 yen), I was a bit disappointed and expected more. Let me tell...

Wonderful ambience--great service. We had the blowfish ( fugu ) menu--presentation was delightful but we found the blowfish itself to be rather bland and lacking excitement, especially following some of our sushi experiences.

I was skeptical as I have never had blowfish before and had no idea what to expect. However, I thought I would trust tripsadvisor as so many times before it has been right and indeed agian this time tripsadvisor did not fail. I have never had anything like this before. I went for the blow fish lunch menu, I was... More

Description
Japan's first restaurant to serve blow fish which had previously been prohibited.Blow fish is a speciality of Japanese cuisine served at Shunpanro's hotel and flagship restaurant.Eating blow fish was trictly prohibited until Japan's first Prime Minister Hirobumi Ito ate it at Shunpanro. He then lifted the ban on eating blow fish which then became a popular and integral part of Japanese cuisine.In Shimonoseki the regional pronunciation for FUGU is FUKU,which is the same pronunciation as the Japanese word for luck.Shunpanro wish all our customers to enjoy the delights of our specially prepared seasonal menus which include a variety of dishes especially pleasing to the eye.
