Attention to all oyster lovers in Tokyo!

July seems like the time for great bargains, well, for oyster lovers. If you feel like raw oysters and cool wine, there are several specials in July in Tokyo.

1. Tokyo Oyster Bar in Gotanda

Tokyo Oyster Bar in Gotanda is having a special campaign until July 31, 2009. On a hot Saturday, I had no choice but to go in when I saw the sign for their special offer.

Raw oysters

One oyster – 250 yen
Half dozen of the same kind – 1,480 yen
One dozen of the same kind – 2,350 yen

When we were there in June, they had Kumamoto, Pacific, and 5 or 6 other kinds from the US or Canada.

Prices don’t sound so good to you? When you consider that diners often pay anywhere from 400 to 700 yen per oyster at a restaurant, this is pretty good deal for the oyster lovers in Tokyo!

  4. Have fun in Matsushima!It’s really one of my favorite place. All around town, they have BBQ oysters, but in particular, there’s a place run by fishermen’s co-op close to the pier. Also, if you go to Shiogama, please definitely stop by at my favorite restaurant, Suishotei or at the wholesale market.
