Hamajimacho in Shima city has various spots with great views, including Isobue-misaki observatory which is chosen as one of "Japan's 100 sunset". Perfectly situated near the beach of Hamajimacho, "Prince" is a long-standing restaurant, founded in 1975. In addition to local customers, many tourists visit here to enjoy the local cuisine of Shima, Tekonezushi, which is the specialty of this restaurant. This restaurant is known as one of the first restaurants which served Tekonezushi, that local fishermen used to eat during fishing. Many customers come here everyday to try the authentic taste of this dish.

Fisherman's dish arranged by the owner!
Fishermen of Shima used to eat this Tekonezushi when they are fishing on their ship. Fishermen used to make Tekonezushi by mixing tuna soaked in soy-sauce with vinegar rice. In this restaurant, the owner arranged this dish slightly differently by putting the soy-sauce soaked tuna on top of vinegar rice!
The most popular dish on the menu is, of course, the authentic Tekonezushi, "Ama no Tekone (Normal)" (800 yen). The rich taste of tuna, that is well-soaked in soy-sauce, goes so well with slightly sweet vinegar rice!
Tekonezushi with plenty of seafood!
Normally Tekonezushi is based on soy-sauce soaked tuna, but "Ama no Tekone (Special)" (1,500 yen) contains several types of fresh sashimi and grilled eel. It is also very popular! I recommend it for those who would like to enjoy many different kinds of seafood from Shima!
