Posts Tagged ‘Uogashi Senryou’

While I was in Japan, I had planned to meet one of my friend. She asked me where I wanted to go, and I requested Tsukiji, Tokyo, because I had never been there.

She researched about the area, before we met, and she gave me a map. For the first time visitor, it was not easy to know how close to each other along narrow alleys Tsukiji shops and restaurants were and how crowded it was with people, so it was easy to miss them.

After walking awhile, we decided to have lunch at Uogashi Senryou (魚河岸千両) of Itadori group. Uogashi literally means fish market, and Senryou means thousands of dollars. (Ryo was a quantity or currency unit used in the old era.)

We shared two dish, Hokkai-no-Kaze and Kaisen (Seafood) Hitsumabuhi.
Hitsu is a round wooden container for cooked rice and mostly used for Sushi. Mabushi probably comes from Mabusu, i.e., sprinkle or coat.

Hokkai-no-Kaze (literally means wind from the northern ocean) is served a lot of fresh seafood from the northern ocean, salmon, sweet prawn, salmon roe, white fish, e.g, snapper, Zuwai crab, etc.

Hitsumabushi is served with chopped fresh fish, and you eat in three ways, taking some into your own bowl.
