What is “Chirimen”?
Welcome to Ninjapan
This time, I will introduce “Chirimen Jaco”.
Have you ever traveled to Japan? I think the Tokyo Olympics will soon begin and many foreigners are thinking about coming to Japan for travel.
Speaking of recent news, as coronaviruses widespread around the world and we are increasingly refraining from traveling abroad, we are worried about what will happen in the future.
I hope it will be resolved soon.
Unusual food in Japan (Chirimen)
I think foreigners will find lots of weird food when they come to Japan.
Japan has many unusual foods for foreigners, such as natto and umeboshi. Today I will introduce “Crimson” which considered strange food by foreigners.
Reaction from foreigners
- As soon as I came to Japan, I saw the food. jam in my colleague’s lunch and was a little terrified.
- When I saw “Crimson”, I could see each eye and felt sorry.
- It looked like a maggot.
Many people surprised at the food they see for the first time.
What is Chirimen (Dried Young Sardines)?
When you come to Japan, there is a chance to see this ingredient. It made from boiled or dried sardine fish. Since it is still a small fish of about 1 cm, the body cooked as it is.
So the fact still remains. Foreigners seem to have poor eyes when eating.
There also boiled and raw types
Actually, there are several cooking methods, and there are various types such as raw mama, boiled and dried. This is because the shelf life changes depending on the cooking method.
But I love Japanese
Japanese people have been eating for a long time, so everyone loves it. It ’s delicious when you eat it over rice.
Good for the body
Chirimen has plenty of calcium and is very good for your body. Even in Japan, there are many children who hate fish and can’t easily eat it, so many moms eat it with their children’s health in mind.
I know once I eat it, but it’s very delicious. Once you eat, you will not be able to stop.
If you have a chance to buy at a Japanese supermarket, look carefully at the contents. As a matter of fact, when eating fish with nets, children of other seafood such as squid and octopus can take together, sometimes they are together.
I am lucky if that happens.
Thank you for reading to the end. chirimen.
Please try it when you come to Japan.
You can also eat at a sushi bar.
