Have you ever eaten xxx?

Turtles and Bears and Wild Eel…OH MY!!!

Have you ever eaten turtle? How about bear? Surely you’ve tried eel before? But, have you tried wild eel??

Last weekend I took a trip to Shiga prefecture. There is a small lake, just north of Lake Biwa, called Lake Yogo. Lake Yogo is of course much smaller than Biwa, but it’s very beautiful.

I stayed at a small Japanese Inn that is supposedly well-known by people from Kansai, but not so well-known by people from Kanto. The owner and Chef, Tokuyama-san, is very “hands-on” with the food he prepares. For example, he personally collected the delicious mushrooms and wasabi from the mountains nearby. He also went with a licensed hunter to kill the bear and deer I devoured. The turtle? Well, he caught that in Lake Yogo and served it as a galantine with bear fat. As for the wild eel, he caught it in Lake Yogo, too - the night before I arrived! In fact, there is no guarantee that guests will eat eel when staying there: if Tokuyama-san catches eel the day before, then you will eat it! But if he doesn’t catch any eel, you’re out of luck!

Another highlight was soaking in the hot spring while watching the sunrise over Lake Yogo and the mountains behind it – incredible!!!

What a fantastic experience!
