Reconstruction Challenge Bowl in Soma City, Fukushima
Hi! This is Sendaishiro of the Heisei period.
In Fukushima (literally means “fortune island”) prefecture, they are having what they call, “Fortune is blooming; Fortune Island: Fukushima Destination Campaign” until the end of June.
During this campaign, many parts of Fukushima are filled with people enjoying what Fukushima has to offer.
Amid the excitement, I just visited Soma city, Fukushima.
In Soma city, “Matukawaura Reconstruction Challenge Bowl” is attracting much attention.
11 restaurants in the city are participating in this campaign, and each restaurant serves its signature bowl.
Although seafood is the main ingredient, they are using safe seafood shipped outside of the prefecture due to the fishing industry’s self-imposed restraint in Fukushima.
With that said, however, Matsukawaura is the fishermen’s town; only in such a town can one prepare seafood in such a manner.
I am definitely going to come back again to eat this delicious seafood bowl when they resume fishing in Fukushima!
