Echizen-Gani is the king of winter delicacies in the coastal area

of Echizen. The fishing season begins around the time cold sea-

sonal winds start to blow. The fishing port then becomes infused

with energy, and Fishermen could catch fresh Echizen-Gani crab

with trawl net.

Echizen-Gani are male snow crabs; Seiko-Gani are female snow

crabs. There are many ways to cook Echizen-Gani, from arai

(sashimi, yude (boiled), yaki-gani (grilled) , Kako-Don (開高丼), and kora-yaki (grilled in the shell)

During the season, Echizen-Gani is sure to please those who ap-

preciate good food.

Wakasa beef has been relished since the Meiji Period. Its high meat quality and good taste maintained for a long time has come to be known nationwide. 

Quality of Wakasa beef is strictly classified from the first to fifth grade. Only high quality beef over the fourth grade is sold as Wakasa beef. Why does Wakasa beef have high quality? Meat quality depends on fat contained in it called sashi. The rich flavor of Wakasa beef comes from sashi contained delicately in the meat. Melting-like texture of sashi and sweet flavor of meat are quite refined and they have refreshing aftertaste. 

Wakasa-beef & uni & awabi very special plane Apr.-Oct.
