Speaking of oysters, Hiroshima and Miyagi prefectures are famous, but did you know that Tokushima prefecture is also hot these days?
Today's recommended oyster from Naruto City, Tokushima Prefecture is "Uchi no Umi." Especially recommended for those who like bite-sized oysters with a strong salty flavor.
This is because ``Uchino Umi Oysters'' are winter oysters made by a fisherman who farms the brand oysters ``Uzushio Champion'' and ``Uzushio King,'' which have appeared on TV, and are made with great care from the baby oyster stage. !
This time, we will introduce such delicious brand oysters from Naruto City, Tokushima Prefecture, ``Uchi no Umi Oysters''!
Brand oysters from Naruto City, Tokushima Prefecture “Uchi no Umi Oysters”
Our sea oysters are Tokushima's representative brand of oysters, made by Etsu-san, a fisherman from Naruto, Tokushima Prefecture.
Whirlpool Champion is a true oyster that grows in a bay called Uchinoumi in Tokushima Prefecture.
Our ocean is a brackish area where the nutrient-rich water from the mountains meets the sea, so it is extremely nutrient-rich. These waters have favorable conditions for oysters, and the oysters grow very large.
That's why it has become Tokushima's representative brand oyster!
In the summer, we also produce rock oysters called Uzushio King, which was broadcast on "Yonchan TV" in Osaka and became a big hit!
What are the characteristics of our sea oysters (raw oysters with shells)?
Our sea oysters are grown using the traditional Japanese farming method of hanging them on oyster rafts.
In previous years, we sold 2-year-old oysters, but in order to pursue the quality of our oysters, we have started selling 1-year-old oysters from 2024.
It is a very delicious raw oyster packed tightly into one grain.

Are you afraid of getting hit with an oyster?
Our sea oysters are harvested under strict hygiene management. Oysters are harvested in waters that have passed strict water quality inspections, and are delivered directly to you in a highly fresh state, so you can enjoy them safely and securely.
Oyster shell processing
Although oyster shells are thoroughly cleaned before being delivered, there may still be some dirt left on them.
When eating raw oysters, use a scrubbing brush to remove dirt from the oyster shells before eating, so you can enjoy them more safely.
How to shuck an oyster
Hold the knife slightly above and to the right of the center of the oyster and stab it gently.
If you hold the knife horizontally and apply too much force, the knife may slip and cause injury.
For beginners, we also recommend wearing gloves.
We also recommend cutting the tip with kitchen scissors to create a space and then inserting a knife there.
