The true taste of Shakotan! Sea Urchins

Food, Summer

Shakotan Peninsula sea urchins live and grow on good-quality kelp, so their rich and creamy sweetness stands out as a characteristic of theirs. More than half of the sea urchins hauled into Shakotan are consumed locally, so they are very precious items that can only be tasted where they’re sourced from. Shops providing bowls of rice topped with sea urchins in Shakotan use locally-caught sea urchins, so you’ll be able to enjoy their rich and deep sweetness wherever you decide to go.
