Photo on the left is an advertisement sigh for a random izakaya in an alley way. We didn't end up going in, but it was intriguing to say the least. This peculiar animal is holding a fish and some alcoholic beverage. Kochi is indeed known for their amazing seafood and local brewery.
We also came across this message at the first restaurant we were at:
From my limited Japanese, I believe it talked about locally grown product for local consumption. The food is produced at the highest quality and consumer can enjoy safely.
Also, we ate some mysterious fish meat. We still don't know what these were. Was it whale? I hope not.
