Tsukiji : Capitulum mitella at Kashigashira

One day of the weekend, I ate lunch with a friend and then, we went to Kashigashira to eat dessert.

Kashigashira was nearly full that day, too 🙂

干からびた魚。いつになったら成仏できるのだろう・・・

There are many brands of sake ! I want to drink the carrot color sake !

Sake, sake, sake, Kashigashira (Tsukiji)

お酒がいっぱい。人参みたいな色のお酒が気になるヽ(´ー`)ノ

Ivory shell (バイ貝)
I always can’t take meat out from the shell well.

バイ貝。いつもうまく取れないのさ(゚Д゚)

Capitulum mitella (亀の手)
I saw it for the first time…..

初めてお目にかかった亀の手・・・やっぱりキモチワルイ・・・(;・∀・)

Capitulum mitella is called “tortoise’s hand” in Japanese.
Well, it never seems shellfish…

It is said that the taste of Capitulum mitella is similar to crabs, but I didn’t think so. It was simply that the taste of shells. Good taste against my expectations 😉

ホンモノの亀の手かと思ってたけど、貝の一種なんだよね。おいしかったけどカニの味はせんかった。

To tell the truth, I believed that  Capitulum mitella is real tortoise’s hand until quite recently 😛
I admire that men of other days tried to eat such an eccentric things. If I see this without any knowledge, I never try to eat such a strange object.

Assorted sashimi for two (刺身盛り合わせ)

Ummm…. That’s OK because those were delicious !
