About this Nohaku
A table filled with seafood. Each food has tips to eat deliciously.
For dinner, lots of seafood are served at the table. Today’s main dish is the pot of Sawara (鰆, Japanese Spanish mackerel). The fish is soft and easy to collapse. I had only eaten this fish with miso marinated grilled before. However, today I tasted 3 different cooking methods: “raw”, “baked” and “boiled (pot)”.
It was the pot that was particularly surprising. Put plenty of liquor in a clay pot and boil it; then turn on the fire to burn off the alcohol; make Japanese broth from the fishbone alone. I could feel a great smell as soon as I entered the room. And, just before eating, put the fillet in the boiled broth and eat it with the Ponzu sauce without overcooking. (Ponzu sauce is a popular sauce used in Japan made of soy sauce and citrus juices). What a fluffy meat! I have never experienced such a texture!
Besides that, you can see other seafood that you have never heard of before, such as a mantle of a noble scallop. You can enjoy the dinner not only with your tongue but also with your eyes.
A couple who have been interacting with Korea for many years. They are so kind!
A mother who had worked as an assistant of a special support class, and a father who practices diving and civil engineering as a diver. They are so kind! They are so close that they call each other “Tecchan (Father)” and “Haru-chan (Mother)”. The family’s atmosphere makes you feel warm and comfortable.
For many years, they have taken part in the exchange business with Korea. In Korea, there are more than 100 “daughters” and “sons” who were taken care of by Moriyama family. According to Mr. Moriyama, they sometimes visit Moriyama’s house from Korea.
Mr. and Ms. Moriyama have three children and five grandchildren living away, and they come back on the day off. Some of the grandchildren stay for 4-5 months, so Mr. and Ms. Moriyama are used to treating children. My son also likes them so much, and he says “let’s go there again” repeatedly.
Enjoy your stay with a unique experience
There is the “Mogihama beach” nearby, which attracts you with clear water and natural sandy beach! How about cycling?
The main attraction of the Minshuku Moriyama is the bicycle rental.
In the surrounding area, there are places such as the Great Ginkgo of Kin (琴の大イチョウ); the Koroku Shrine (胡簶神社); and the Mogihama Beach (茂木浜海水浴場), one of the most beautiful beaches in Tsushima. In the autumn, you can enjoy maple hunting at the “Shushi Momiji Kaido (Shushi Maple Sea-route)” nearby. After sweating with cycling, regain energy with seafood for dinner!
Mogihama Beach which has calm waves and the shallow sandy beach is very popular with children! As there is also a bicycle rental for children at “Minshuku Moriyama”, we also recommend that you stay with your family on a summer vacation and enjoy relaxing in a sea-bathing!
Take a rest with Matcha. You can also experience the Japanese tea ceremony.
In addition to the above, I want you to experience the Japanese tea ceremony. Ms. Midori, a friend of Ms. Moriyama, is a master of a tea ceremony. Let’s have a green tea in the Japanese-style tea room. You can also learn how to make a Japanese green tea, or have a green tea by wearing Yukata.
There is also a menu where you only have tea sweets and green tea, so please feel free to experience it.
