I was at Kamamoto and was told raw horse meat (called basashi, or sakura niku) is the specialty of the region. I've tried it and felt it tastes very similar to raw beef. It's eaten with grated ginger, or shoyu, so that gives the mellow meat a bit more flavour.
I love chicken sashimi (torisashi) more. It's smooth, firm, yet it could be cut through with the teeth very easily. I'll definitely order chicken sashimi if I see it again on a reputable Jap restaurant menu.
Caution: Only very few chicken meat can be eaten raw. Those from our markets and supermarkets must be cooked!


Always looking forward to the breakfast spread after waking up at a ryokan. Every dish meticulously laid out even before you arrive. Eating clean with the local and seasonal specialties.
