Found at the foot of Kitsuki Castle is restaurant Wakaeya with over 300 years of history. This long-established traditional eatery offers their staple menu item, sea bream chazuke "Ureshino", proudly passed down through the generations since opening its doors. This traditional taste of castle town Kitsuki is served in a bowl of rice topped with slices of sea bream and the restaurant's secret family-recipe sesame sauce with Kitsuki-produced tea poured all over it.
The name "Ureshino" hails from when the ruling lord of the Kitsuki Domain once savored the taste of it, he blurted, "ureshiinou," translated "very satisfied." The flavor of it has not been altered in any way ever since.
