Maruma-shirasuya | Japan Highlights Travel, for sightseeing around Tokaido

Kakegawa Station 

[Maruma-shirasuya]

Fluffy, freshly boiled Mochimune shirasu, made in the old-fashioned way

Shirasu (young sardines) caught at Mochimune Harbor are carefully cooked in an old round pot while they are still flopping about. The freshly-boiled shirasu served at this establishment have a soft and fluffy texture and are exquisitely seasoned with salt. During the fishing season from the end of March to mid January, raw shirasu are sold on any days when there has been a shirasu catch. Chirimen-boshi, sun-dried to seal in the flavor, shirasu boiled down in soy, some with added sesame, some with Japanese peppers, and freshly boiled sakura shrimp are also all very popular.
