Yobuko, Live Squid

Yobuko in Sagaken is a well known harbor town famous for its fresh squid. Many tourists come here to eat squid, ika, that has been freshly caught and then served as sashimi or eaten while the squid is still moving.

Just like putting out the laundry, squid drying on a line

  1. I’ve never had dried or live squid actually. The lunch you had looks really fresh, but I’d really prefer it dead when eating it^^
