Shirasu of the Northern Limit

Shimmering fresh shirasu

In July 2017, full-scale shirasu or whitebait fishing resumed in four areas of Miyagi (Sendai City, Natori City, Watari Town and Yamamoto Town), including the Yuriage fishing port in Natori City, which is famously known as the northernmost point in Japan to catch shirasu. (“Hokugen” means “northernmost.”) The fishing season is from July to November. Fresh sashimi and rice bowl dishes made with shirasu can be enjoyed at local restaurants. In addition, boiled and simmered shirasu processed products are sold at local shops.
