Awaji Island Three-Year Blowfish
Blowfish are usually shipped to market after being raised for two years, but at Fukura Harbor at the southern end of Awaji Island, they are raised for around three years. By raising them one year longer, the amount of meat on their bodies increases and their bodies are tightened by the fast tidal current of the Naruto Straits, so they taste just as good as those that grow naturally in the ocean.
Awaji Island is one of the leading cattle raising locations in Hyogo Prefecture, and Tajima cattle calves raised there have to meet rigorous standards to be called Awaji Beef. Awaji Beef is precious meat, with only about 200 heads circulating in the marketplace per year.
