Speaking of Himeji’s delicious seafood in early summer, Spanish mackerel is it. It is known as Spring fish, but catching Spanish mackerel at Harimanada-sea, the south of Himeji plains, is banned until early May. Because of later catching than other area, they grew up well and more than a meter long! Since Spanish mackerel is soft and perishable, “Saikyo-miso Pickles” is famous. In fact, Sashimi Shabu-Shabu and Tempura is so delicious. When you come to Himeji in May, please relish the Spanish mackerel cuisine.
