Flickr Friday: Welcome to Kabejima
June 18, 2010
In 2007, my friend Stuart (aka, Flickr user TheKingInYellow) toured the Japanese island of Kyūshū. While there, he visited the town of Kabejima (pronounced “Kabeshima”) in Saga prefecture, which is apparently renowned for its squid.
Here are a few squiddy pictures from the trip:
I don’t know what species of squid this is, but it’s pretty big…a good 1-1.5 feet long. At this particular restaurant, live squid are kept in tanks (shown above) and served, erm…just about as fresh as possible. Kind of gruesome, but I’m told it was quite delicious.
