Marukai Kobo

  • Yoshimi Naito and Chie Izumihoto

Marukai is a general marine products wholesaler, food processor, and distributor. The most recommended item is the hamayaki mackerel. In Obama, grilled mackerel was always served with sekihan (red rice) at weddings and funerals. It tastes even better if you warm it up a little in the microwave before eating and dip it in ginger soy sauce. You can also enjoy it in the rest area in front of the store or outside on the terrace if the weather is nice. The skewers can be removed and it can be served on a plate, so please ask.
  • Products that can only be found in a store directly operated by a fish company

The fried sea bream is also one of our specialties. The sea bream fish balls that are made from left over sasazuke (a type of pickled sea bream) are deep fried, and can only be found here! At only 100 yen per piece, it is a popular item. The fried fish is packed with the flavor of sea bream and is served hot. Freshly fried fish paste tempura is also available only on Saturdays and Sundays. Please enjoy the unique products of Marukai, which specializes in the processing of marine products.
