Hamamatsu Station 

[Natural Tiger Puffer Fish]

Sweetness, flavor and texture you can only get if it's all-natural

When it comes to fugu (puffer fish), perhaps nowhere is more famous than Shimonoseki, but thanks to a change in sea currents, right now Enshunada has some of the best tennen torafugu (natural tiger puffer fish) in the country. Taking full advantage of the situation, a festival called "Enshunada Tennen Torafugu Matsuri" is held at Kanzanji Onsen to match the timing of the fishing season. Fugu cuisine can also be enjoyed around Hamamatsu Station. The firm texture, sweetness and flavor, which can only be had from the all-natural, "tennen" article, are drawing wide acclaim.
