But it’s these little guys we are here for at the moment!
The table has quite some intrique woodwork.
Some fresh appetizers.

Rests to say that the dishes at Shirasuya (しらすや) are truly delicious and has a bountiful flavour while the portions are also very generous. So next time you’re in Enoshima please make sure to try this local delicacy!
