Kagoshima local cuisine coupled with a renowned Kumasotei specialty: sakezushi and “seasonal rice.”


Distinctive Kagoshima local cuisine


Our tonkotsu broth is made by boiling Kagoshima black pig pork ribs in three stages, with such ingredients as miso, shochu, brown sugar, and regional sake. The broth, which our restaurant has served ever since it was founded, not only boasts an outstanding gloss and luster, but a profound flavor too.




Kumasotei’s renowned sake-seasoned sushi is carefully prepared from nine types of seafood and mountain products. These are pressed together with 180g of rice and 180ml of local sake, and left to ferment overnight to become “Nare-zushi.” Our restaurant’s recipe has been secretly handed down through generations of female cooks.

●You don’t even need to pre-order it!




All of our blue sprats are caught in the ocean near Kagoshima. And for sashimi, we strongly recommend you eat local fish! Our sashimi derives extra flavor and a refreshing taste courtesy of our homemade vinegared miso. Blue sprats are so shiny that they are known as “Droplets of the Ocean,” meaning they are as good on the eye as they are on the tongue!




For our “Satsuma-age” fried dish, we rely on a sumptuous lineup of lizard fish, cod, flying fish and golden threadfin bream. In Kagoshima dialect, we call this dish “tsuke-age.” At first, you can simply enjoy the fish just-fried and piping hot. Then you can add wasabi soy sauce!




We use one of Japan’s top-3 local free-range chickens, the “Satsuma Chicken,” for our chicken sashimi dish. It is first lightly broiled, then served seared. The wholesome flavor and delicate texture continues to be loved by locals in the present day. We know the chicken farmers, so we know we are using only the freshest local chicken.




Since the distant past, local households have been making various types of “Satsuma-jiru” soup. We make ours by extracting the soup stock from Satsuma chicken bones and adding local chicken meat plus lots of local vegetables. Mugi miso-shiru (barley miso soup) is another Kagoshima dish widely enjoyed by our customers!
