[Maruu Tashiro Main Branch]
A long-standing shop selling Odawara kamaboko fish cakes that invented white kamaboko
This long-standing shop gets its name from its founder, Unosuke Tashiro, who began the business of making Odawara kamaboko in the early Meiji period. Kamaboko, also called fish cake, is cured ground fish cooked into a loaf. At the time of Maruu Tashiro's founding, kamaboko were typically gray, but Unosuke researched how to make white kamaboko and created the ideal kamaboko, the taste of which has been passed down to today as the pink and white kamaboko "Shodai Unosuke". "Kimi-maki", created by Unosuke's son, and "Date-maki", carefully formulated by his grandson, are also signature products. The shop also sells a large number of everyday kamaboko. Enjoy tasting the kamaboko and find one you like.
