A Day at Misaki Port

Last summer I went to a remote part of Japan, just a 2-hour journey from Tokyo. I'd been itching to experience something new and I wasn't in the best of moods so visiting a new place seemed like a good idea. Making my trip to Misaki Port on the Miura Peninsula was one of the best decisions I've ever made. 

 Misaki Port is famous for one thing and that's their fresh maguro catch. In fact, this place boasts one of the largest catch of maguro ( tuna ) in the country. Most restaurants in this area serve tuna in some form and they are absolutely delicious.

Tuna heads on display in front of a local restaurant specializing in grilled tuna head. 

Smoked and marinated in a soy-based sauce, these meaty pieces of tuna taste more like ribs. They were so good I bought a dozen fillets to take home with me. 

A bowl of fresh sliced tuna over steamed rice was the perfect lunch to tide me over until tea time.
