Tamachi is getting a touch of the islands with the February 2017 opening of Gotojin. Located four hours by ferry from Nagasaki, the Goto Islands are rather remote, but this izakaya is set to present the best of their produce and cuisine. Feast on dishes made with rich, chewy horse mackerel, or what is known as arakabu in Kyushu: fried or stewed kasago (scorpionfish). Other highlights are the shabu-shabu with Goto pork broth and their robata-grilled dishes; whatever you order, you'll be savouring all things Goto. Last but not least, the Goto Udon, noted for its hard flour and toughness, is best had with a cup of shochu on the side.
