Oyster Paradise Matsushima
The world's your oyster in the world's oyster nursery!
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, but the pearly heart of the action lies in Matsushima Bay (also famous as one of Japan’s top three scenic views). The incredible oysters of Matsushima are not only loved throughout Japan, but they hold strong ties with oyster cuisine around the world, with locally produced oyster ‘babies’ being exported to other oyster-obsessed 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, alongside a local fisherman! Enjoy these tasty treasures of the sea as the locals do – fresh off a fishing boat in Matsushima Bay.
The tour will include a trip out to the oyster farms on a local 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 by at one of the oyster farms to try up to three fresh oysters each, straight from the ocean! Select from a variety of condiments and try pairing 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!!
Immerse yourself in the culture and flavors of Japan's most scenic bay!
