this is what we generally call *kama-meshi*.
*kama* is a general noun for our traditional rice cooker pot(non electric) and *meshi* is a casual term that means meal of any kind.
When you say kamameshi, it’s something like in the photo above. Rice seasoned with soy sauce and fish stock, then cooked with meat or seafood and some other kinds of ingredients.(if you are wondering what the yellow thing next to the quail egg, it’s a ginkgo nut) 
It’s usually served as it is cooked(it’s still very hot to touch and that’s why it’s set in the wooden frame), so you help yourself to the smaller bowl when you eat it. YUM.

had dinner at nearby izakaya tonight.
we ordered lot more, but I couldn&#8217;t wait till everything was delivered.
Kobe is a port town, so fish are generally more fresh and reasonable than you eat in Tokyo. How lucky I am;)
