Latest newsletter: Japanese Sea Bream

April 15, 2016

Here is a Japanese traditional poem, tanka, compiled in "Manyoshu",
the Japanese oldest anthology(7-8c), No.3829.

"Hishihosuni hirutsukikatete tainegau warenina mieso nagino
atsumono"

Interpretation: I would like to eat a Japanese sea bream dipped in
vinegary soy sauce with condiments like squashed spring onion or
garlic. I don't need a heartleaf false pickerelweed soup.

At this time of year when cherry blossoms fully bloom in the mountains
of Japan, it is also the best season of Japanese sea bream which is
said to be the king of fishes. During season, it is called "Sakura
dai (cherry blossom sea bream)" or "Hanami dai (Cherry-blossom
viewing sea bream)". It is the time that it grows fat and tastes nice
because it will spawn soon.
