If you’re digging for a refined dining experience among the historical relics of Ojika Island, Fujimatsu is the place to be. Once featured in the Michelin Guide, the restaurant is situated inside a kominka (Japanese folk house) once resided by the Fujimatsu family — whalers, sake brewers and one of the richest households that built Ojika Island’s economy. The seating is Japanese-style, and with private rooms, you can expect truly sublime and intimate dining not short of well-crafted cuisine. As you step through the stunning 170-year-old house and into the backyard, the lavish view of Nozaki Island lays bare. They offer several elegant multi-course menus using fresh seasonal fish and vegetables from local farmers and fishermen. A beautiful sashimi platter, wholesome kamameshi (rice dish), and turban shell (when it’s on season) await — even simple dishes are elevated, meticulously prepared and artfully served. The restaurant opens for lunch and dinner, but reservations must be made at least a week before to ensure the highest quality.
