Fishing restaurant (Izakaya) Zaou is located in Shinjuku (South exit). In Zauo, you can have an experience to catch the fish and eat them right away after the chef cooks it for you. Zauo has the astonishing scenery from the entrance where you will find a big wooden boat set in the middle of the room making. You will come across is the considerable amount of live fish swimming in the water right next to the boat.
Of course you can have seats in the rooms that are very Japanese style which are as good as the ones on the boat, but if you want to have the seats on the boat where you can see people enjoying fishing, it would be better to book them in advance.
The effect of the massive boat placed in the center of the room is really overwhelming, but what makes it so different about Zauo compare to the other restaurants that serve raw fish is, not only the entertainment they provide for the customers, but also the freshness of the fish.
Firstly you select the fish from the menu and borrow fishing rods from one of the staffs. And then, start to catch fish (100 yen for the bait)! After you catch a fish, tell the staff your table number. Select how you want the fish to be cooked and wait until it comes! When the fish comes, enjoy 4 types of soy sauce that taste all different. Fresh fish is very yummy but also you can enjoy fishing here. Interesting? Please check it out!
