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.
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.
