Taiza Crab at Kyotango Ryugu Project
Uniquely local cooking experience using exceptionally fresh crabs
Tamatebako Female Snow Crab Bowl Making Experience
Rice bowl making experience at a local inn using crabs caught in Taiza, Japan's leading crabbing area. The female snow crabs used as an ingredient are on the smaller side, but the rich miso, bubbly textured roe (fertilized), and unfertilized roe on the inside of the shell are widely enjoyed as delicacies.

Getting to make a sushi roll, cut sashimi and make our own sashimi and crab dish.
The staff at Kyotango Ryugu Project were wonderful and so funny and fun to be around. From their crab dance to teaching us Tango べん (dialect), they were so upbeat and made the whole experience really enjoyable. I loved that we got to in the kitchen and not only make maki sushi but also their own special female crab どんぶり(topped rice). The women were so helpful and stayed right by us giving us direction and encouragement the whole time. And even more so, we made a gigantic tray of nigiri sushi! The whole experience led to a remarkable banquet of all the food we made and both crab hot pots and grilled crab. It was delicious and with the cold weather it was the perfect meal.
Amazing food experience! We made hand roll and nigiri sushi and crab row bowls. We also had bbq crab and crab hot pot. Everything was delicious and the old ladies who organized the experience were so friendly and cute! They have sea kayaking in summer, so I'll return for that!
Getting to do the cooking
It was very interesting experience of cooking Japanese meals and a huge variety of delicious seafood to try.
Preparing the food by ourselves.
The whole meal was very delicious and traditional. Also we were served strawberry from the private farm which was really nice.
The food was delicious!
