Local is lekker - Toyama, Japan

The latest from my Japanese correspondent:

My favourite restaurant in Toyama is Hamatoku, because everything is calm and soft, with the essence of Japanese beauty at a reasonable price.

The menu is full of traditional Kyoto food, with delicate flavours and appearance. You feel the changing of the seasons with both the menu and the flower arrangements. The atmosphere is one of real calm and I would call it modern Japanese.

The menu features mostly set menu's.  These vary greatly but my best is one with 6 dishes that includes, tempura, raw fish, grilled fish, steamed vegetables, and so on, plus rice and soup.
