Spiny lobster season begins in late August, and what better way to sample the fresh produce than a visit to a seaside treasure? Located in Nomozaki, the southernmost tip of Nagasaki peninsula, Pension and Eatery Kirara sits facing Wakimisaki beach.
Live lobsters fill tanks ready to be devoured as mouth-wateringly fresh sashimi or in warming miso soup. The snug eatery attracts more than 100 spiny lobster fans over weekends during peak season, so be sure to arrive early to secure your crustaceans!
For those keen to extend their time in Nomozaki a little longer, lodging begins at 2500 yen for mountain-facing rooms and 3000 yen for sea views. Call ahead as services differ seasonally.
