As you might know, sea turtle dishes are a local specialty of Tokyo's Ogasawara Islands:

I can't find any restaurant in "mainland Tokyo" that serves it, but the following Okinawa/Ogasawara specialized restaurant in Saitama (Koshigaya City) seems to have it on the menu:

You can enjoy suppon, turtle at following restaurants in Tokyo:

I've never heard suppon sashimi, though. They are usually cooked. They are also very expensive. Expect to pay ~20,000yen per person.

I found another one in Shimbashi:


Apparently the course starts with Suppon blood mixed with sake then move onto liver sashimi, then to nabemono... Not for me, thank you very much!

Thanks Tokyonet. The shop at Shimbashi was featured in an america lifestyle show call Andrew Zimmern's Bizarre Food.

You can buy your own supon to cook up at the basement market in Okachimachi!

There's a shop in the bottom of the Kokusai Kaikan in Yurakacho that sells supon jellies if I remember rightly.

hi girltokyo, thanks. I wish I could prepare suppon but I guess I would leave it to the professional. Nevertheless, I will try to do some research on recipes and ingredients before trying.
