Dining

White Squid

White Squid【May through October】

From early summer to late autumn, the evening flicker of the lights on the Sea of Japan, luring the fish to the fishermen's boats, is a poignant reminder of the season. The catch hauled into the boats is Kensaki squid, known locally as shiroika or 'white squid'.

This popular sweet, rich flavour is emblematic of summer in Tottori. It's delicious as sashimi, boiled with vegetables in soy sauce, or fried.

Yamadaya's specialty! Original white squid bowl \1080 (tax included)

Rock Oysters【early June through mid-August】

Tottori's rock oysters grow to 20cm long, reaching weights of as much as 1kg. They are collected naturally, by skin divers. At 'Natsudomari' Port in Tottori's Aoya Town, traditional women divers called ama collect the oysters just as in days of old.

Nicknamed 'the milk of the sea', the oysters are at their best as a hearty meal squeezed with lemon. Quite different from the Pacific oysters found in winter, the oysters of early summer through the Obon season are the epitome of Tottori's summer flavour.

Rock Oysters
Matsuba Crab

Matsuba Crab【early November through mid-March】

The full-grown adult male snow crab, called Matsuba crab, is a luscious feast packed with meat, a symbol of winter in Tottori. These crabs are found from the first half of November until the period of March when the Sea of Japan's winter waves are still high.

The Matsuba crab's big, meat-packed shell is a hearty bite, excellent boiled or roasted. The crab's miso pairs perfectly with sake or rice.
