This event is usually held for a few days in winter. Except this event, I know a standing seafood bar in Ueno 上野 Tokyo. They offer inexpensive and fresh Japanese seafood. Take a look below.

松茸 Matsutake pine mushroom is usually expensive. It has really good flavor.

800 yen for 1 person.
I think this is really reasonable and great taste because expensive Matsutake and wagyu beef are in the soup.

Except this event, are you looking for Wagyu beef restaurant? Check it out below.

This Nabe above uses thin legs of snow crab that are for making tasty soup. The king crab has more meat than the snow crab. However, the thin legs' edible parts are almost nothing. If you want to eat crab meat, you should choose the Nabe of king crab.

White shrimp and yellowtail
White shrimp is a local food in Toyama 富山.

NabeFes ご当地鍋フェスティバル

Maybe some people do not really like this shrimp that simply boiled with the soup. When you are eating it, the soft shell, barb and legs of the shrimp kept their original raw texture, and felt rough in mouth. If you like shrimp, this is worth trying.

Regular: 900 yen
Double topping of shrimp: +200 yen
The quantity of the other toppings and the stew are the same as the regular one.
The pictures show “Double topping one”.
