Tasty grilled iwana fish in Kamikochi
2nd day in Kamikochi, we walked from Kappabashi bridge to Myojinike pond. We stopped at Kamonjigoya to eat the famous iwana (river trout) grilled over an irori.
Iwana is well grilled for 40 minutes. You can eat a whole fish.
It tastes great and go with beer!
Grilled iwana with salt (900 yen)
Kamonjigoya was built in 1880 by Kamonji Kamijyo. He was a good hunter and knowledgeable mountain guide. He guided Walter Weston, a British missionary and mountaineer who introduced the 'Japan Alps' to overseas.
