All You Can Eat Tamago Kake Gohan For 300 Yen!
T.K.G. (Raw Egg on Rice)
You know already what’s TKG, right? If not yet, check out my post here about Tamago Kake Gohan.
Two years ago, I saw this TV program featuring a place that serves all you can eat Tamago Kake Gohan for 300 yen (about $3)! Yes, only raw eggs and rice, crazy right?
Crazy indeed, that I decided to go there. It’s actually in the same prefecture where I live now, but it takes about two hours to get there by car. When I arrived, some customers are already waiting outside the place.
Eatery that offers All-You-Can-Eat T.K.G.
The name of the eatery is Shokudou Kamecchi.
In the eatery, souvenir items and more…
The place is located on the hillside. There is a park and a soccer field nearby. Right beside the eatery is a souvenir area showcasing local products like fresh and pickled vegetables, packs of egg and more. The eatery itself is pretty small. It can only serve less than 20 people at a time, so you need to wait for awhile to have your turn. I wrote my name on the waiting list and waited.
While waiting, I noticed some photos posted on the wall, photos of celebrities and TV personalities that already visited the place and had TKG there.
My name was called and I went inside. They have their own ticket machine where you can pick the menus to order. I gave the ticket to the staff and we were then ushered to our seats. The woman staff asked me the amount of rice I want and soon after that she provided me one egg, a bowl of rice, pickled radish, and miso soup.

How it works
The system is simple, just ask the staff for refill of egg and rice as many times as you want. They have three kinds of soy sauce-based sauces with seaweed, spring onions, and shiso. I can’t remember exactly how many eggs I ate but I got full immediately.
Other than the TKG set menu, they also offer five other menus including omelette with their original tomato sauce and sweet rolled omelette.
Take a look at the picture below.
Right below the nameboard of the eatery, there is a text, in Japanese, that states “This is the place of Tamago Kake Gohan that Kishida Ginkou popularized”. Anything familiar? Well, how about the name “Kishida Ginkou”? He is the person I mentioned in my first TKG post. He’s from Misaki town, where this eatery is also located.
Take the T.K.G. challenge
Want to try all you can eat TKG and find out how many eggs you can eat in one meal? Come and visit Misaki town, they offer not only fresh eggs but also fresh air and relaxing scenery.
Don’t forget to take a souvenir photo of yourself with their huge TKG comic foreground!

How To Get There
Take a train from Okayama Station on JR Tsuyama Line towards Tsuyama and get off at Kamenoko Station. From the station, it takes about 15-20 minutes of walk to reach the eatery. You will pass the Kamenoko Post Office on the way.
Note: The current price for TKG set menu when I went there was 300 yen. It’s now 350 yen according to their website.
