A taste also loved by musicians
Another popular dish is the GLAY Maki (648 yen), a type of maki sushi, which uses plenty of rich, sweet tasting sea urchins. This is a special menu named after the popular Japanese rock band, GLAY, who were first formed in Hakodate and are known to have eaten this dish once before heading to Tokyo.
