Oyster Paradise Matsushima
Experience oyster farming and tasting at one of Japan's Three Most Scenic Spots.
Number of Participants
The Tohoku region is a foodie’s paradise – especially if you love fresh, delicious seafood! The entire coastline of Miyagi Prefecture is famous for its giant, milky, juicy oysters. Oysters from Matsushima are particularly famous throughout Japan and they hold strong ties with oyster cuisine around the world. Locally produced oyster ‘babies’ are being exported to other oyster-loving countries like France for overseas cultivation.
This guided tour will introduce you to both the culture and flavours of Tohoku experienced through local oyster farming with a local fisherman! Harvest and taste fresh oysters from Matsushima Bay.
The tour will include a trip out to the oyster farms on a boat with a local fisherman who will show you around the bay and tell you more about what makes Miyagi Prefecture the perfect environment for cultivating oysters. On the boat, you will stop at one of the oyster farms to taste up to 3 fresh oysters each, directly pulled from the ocean! You can add a variety of condiments and try pairing the oysters with a glass of local sake. Back on shore, sit down at a local oyster shack to continue the feast with all-you-can eat steamed oysters, oyster rice and oyster soup!!
