At Taisho no Sato, you can try your hand at making chikuwa using sea bream, which is also used in the products of the facility’s owner, Amochinmi. Chikuwa is made by impaling fish paste onto a thick stick, squeezing it into a cylindrical shape, and grilling it. The finished chikuwa can of course be eaten on the spot. There is also a combination experience that includes one handmade chikuwa, five rice crackers, and one furikake-making session.
