Trails to Oishii Tokyo

This time, we focus on Kuruma-ebi, considered the king of shrimp when it comes to Japanese cuisine. With its elegant appearance and full-bodied umami flavor, it's frequently featured as a good luck charm at celebratory feasts. We visit Amakusa, an island with spots recently given World Heritage status, and meet the producers dedicated to bringing the freshest, best-tasting Kuruma-ebi to consumers.

The most appealing thing about Japanese corn is its fruit-like sweetness. Hokkaido Prefecture's large corn fields are home to many varieties, including one that's soft enough to eat raw, another with kernels as white as snow, and a flint corn with large, rich kernels. In addition, we showcase a popular cornbread which people line up for hours to get their hands on, unique French dishes that feature corn's sweetness and texture, and much more.

The Karei is a type of flatfish beloved in Japan. Karei is great as sashimi, of course, but also simmered, grilled, deep-fried, and more. In short, it can be enjoyed in a variety of ways through the year. This time, we travel to Oita Prefecture in Kyushu, the southernmost of Japan's main islands, to discover a highly-valued type of karei called Shiroshita-karei. There, we talk to fishermen and chefs to discover what is behind the great flavor of this fish.
