Kakioko (a pancake with oysters) in Hinase town

Hinase is well known for a local specialty ‘okonomiyaki’ with oysters.

Okonomiyaki is a popular pan fried food that consists of batter and cabbage.
It has special sauce and selected topping on it.

In Hinase, locals add oysters to okonomiyaki, it’s called ‘kakioko’.
Recently, there has been growing interest in kakioko among people, and many tourists are visiting Hinase just to eat kakioko


We visited ‘Tama chan’, one of the most popular kakioko restaurants in Hinase.
It takes 10min by car from Uminoeki Shioji.   Or, 2min walk from JR Sogo station.

The chairs for customers were lined up outside the restaurant.

Apparently, people queue up for hours at weekends.


It was crowded even though it was weekday! So lively!

We filled in an order form while we were waiting.


I ordered ‘kakioko no jo’, the most recommended menu of the restaurant

This kakioko is a bit different from others as it has two flavour.
A half of it has a sauce, and the other side has salt on it


These are toppings for kakioko, seaweed, sweet ginger, and dried bonito flakes.

In fact, kakioko took part in the contest for the local food of Japan last year.
It came in 9th, and it made kakioko quite famous

By the way, the best season for kakioko is from the end of October to the beginning of April.
Don’t miss it
(some restaurants offer kakioko used frozen oysters during summer)

There are 19 restaurants which offers kakioko in Hinase at the moment.
Each kakioko has different flavor, so you should try them and find out your favorite one!
