A Crib Note for Toraya
*1, Toraya Tempura
Toraya is a very famous old Tempura and Sashimi restaurant in Yokohama, which is highly rated on the Japanese internet, but not yet developed for non Japanese speakers because of no English menu and limited information.
For non Japanese speakers it could be hard to drop by this kind of local restaurant without Japanese attendant. It is a pity.
But DO NOT WORRY, I will guide you how to explore this great restaurant so that you can have the best Tempura and Sashimi in Yokohama without language problems.
Their super-delicious Tempura and Sashimi are worth to try.

No reservation is needed if you are a small group. It is a local eatery, nothing exclusive.

3 kinds of Sashimi of today's recommendations, for two people, about 3,500-4,000 yen
Small Sashimi portion, 1,100yen～2,000yen
*4, Sashimi Komori, Their fresh Bonito is the best in the world!
They never treat farm-raised fish, and have firm bonds of trust with local wholesale dealers, so the fish quality is no doubt.
Please note that the variety of fish and the price are depending on the market. Ask them the price when you order.
They have been long-loved by locals and many customers since 1958, which means they mostly satisfy customer's needs, and there is nothing dodgy without price list.
*5, ld good Tempura Bar
They also have boiled fish with soy sauce and sugar, and some la carte. Ask them if you are interested in.

For the reasons of no price list in this restaurant it is owner's consideration for the hosts/hostesses in the customers, and many frequent local repeaters know the price.
