Bright Smile and Kaisen-don in Kesennuma—Maguro-ya

This is ariTV’s Tomomi Hama.
The other day, in Miyagi’s coastal Kesennuma, we ate Kaisen-don (rice bowls with seafood toppings) which had a plenty of seafood.
Needless to say, it’s tasty. Also, the owner of a diner serves the dish, Mr. Murakami is a heart-warming person. I became a fan of the diner instantly.
This time, we introduce you Maguro-ya (“Tuna Shop”).


Maguro-ya has several stores in Kesennuma, and we visited Maguro-ya housed in Umi no Ichi (“Market of Sea”) which was engulfed by the 2011 tsunami, and just reopened this April.

As we entered the diner, we heard bright “Irasshaimase (welcome)!” and saw cheerful smile.
Owner Mr. Murakami.


One of their stores reopened in May, 2011, and this is the third Maguro-ya to start business again.

When we visited the diner was packed with customers, but they serve them well.
They cooked a mini rice bowl for my kids! They said they wanted children to love seafood, too!


Mr. Murakami’s family lives by fishing, he used to work at a fish market and knows everything about fish.
His father, 70, is still working as a fisher, although he once lost his boat because of the 2011 tsunami.


Umi no Ichi is Kesennuma’s landmark.

Drop by and enjoy the port town!
