"Kamameshi (釜飯)" is a Japanese rice dish consisting of rice, vegetables (root veggies like carrots and burdock, mushrooms), chicken, fish, clam cooked with dashi broth, soy sauce, and mirin (Japanese sweet rice wine). As shown in the pics, each rice pot is serving for one, and carefully prepared🔥 It's a comfort food for Japanese😋🔥🔥🔥 Instead of eating directly out from the pot, you use a rice scoop and serve it to your own bowl🍚🤤 Scooping your very own rice...this might be a unique Japan experience😊✨

You can experience this at "Seigetsudo (清月堂)" which is a restaurant run by a Japanese confectionery shop "Seigetsudo" born in 1907 in Ginza🍡🍵 Other than kamameshi, you can also enjoy Japanese sweets including Anmitsu (jelly dessert) using matcha and sweet bean soup😍 Their popular gomoku kamameshi and eel kamameshi are especially recommendable! It might be fun ordering different kinds with friends and family and sharing them✨👍
