The Pacific Ocean and Mikawa Bay surrounding the Atsumi Peninsula. It is famous for its variety of shellfish such as clams, large clams, oysters, and mussels.
Atsumi Chamber of Commerce and Industry “Kaidukushi Business Committee” is promoting to the whole country as “the best shellfish peninsula in Japan”.
April 8th is designated as “Shellfish Day”, and a campaign is held every year at accommodations and restaurants in the Atsumi area.
From spring to early summer, we sell the local cuisine “Atsumi Asari no Oshizushi” in the city and Toyohashi city as a limited product. Peel the local clams one by one, cook them sweet and spicy, and enjoy the pressed sushi on vinegared rice.
