** Sushi and Seafood Rice Bowl (Kaisen-Donburi)**

Facing Suruga Bay, the deepest bay in Japan, Numazu Port, due to such a peculiar feature, is rich in various kinds of fish and seafood, including deep-sea fish. There are many sushi restaurants around the port, which serve delicious sushi with fresh fish and seafood. It is truly a bustling little kitchen in Japan, serving inshore fish, tuna, salmon, and other sushi and sashimi, as well as seafood BBQ.

** Dried fish (Himono) **
Numazu Port is also famous for producing himono dried fish. Especially as for dried horse mackerel, Numazu produces the most in Japan.
Himono is a traditional processed food, where fish is dried under the sun to remove moisture for an extended term of storage. The drying process condenses the taste of fish and makes it deeper, as well as making the fish richer in nutrients, such as proteins and vitamins, compared to fresh fish. You can buy himono as a souvenir, and only need to cook it on a grill or in a frying pan to serve.

** Green Tea (Cha) **

Shizuoka Prefecture, where Numazu Port is located, is famous as the top producer of green tea in Japan. At Numazu Minato Shinsenkan market mall, which sells a wide selection of local specialties, you can taste a delicious cup of green tea as the mall is directly operated by a local tea company. One of the popular food there is a tea float with cold green tea topped with tea-flavored ice cream.
