After a long day of kayaking and snorkeling on Kealakekua Bay, we landed at Teshima's: a Japanese joint that has been around since 1929. I feasted on the "deep sea trio," a bento box-type meal that included fried fish, ahi sashimi, shrimp tempura, pickled cucumbers, and miso soup. Like most of the food on the big island so far, it was solid, but not exceptional. But I came hungry and left happy, and I really liked the feel of the place. It had a local old-school vibe. I imagine this place to be the Japanese counterpart to the Italian red suace restaurants that are sprinkled throughout DC and Baltimore. Did I mention that while snorkeling I swam with the entire cast of Finding Nemo (Hi Dora!), plus I saw a puffer fish. Lovely.
