An introduction to Shiogama

Shiogama is located in Miyagi Prefecture and lies close to the center of the Tohoku region, approximately 16 km from Sendai. The city embraces Chiganoura (Shiogama Bay), a portion of the beautiful scenic bay of Matsushima.

Although small, Shiogama is a city of rich and diverse features. Its abundant cultural and traditional heritage includes landmarks such as Shiogama Shrine, the seafood industry (the city’s major industry), and the tourism industry that, together with nearby Matsushima, attracts many visitors. Shiogama also offers many areas of unspoilt nature. From Shiogama’s clean water comes locally-brewed sake, and from its sea, protected over the generations by the local people, comes a bounty of seafood in quantities that are remarkably plentiful, even for the Tohoku region.

Shiogama Fish Park

Shiogama Fish Park is located in the Shinhama-cho quarter of Shiogama. This large-scale market was established in its current location in 1965 and boasts a history of 50 years. The box-shaped, generously proportioned building is home to over 140 seafood stalls dealing in fresh fish, processed marine products, and salted and dried seafood. With Shiogama Port located right next door, the wholesale market sees large hauls of fresh fish unloaded daily.

The fresh tuna (maguro) catch at Shiogama Port is one of the largest in the entire country. Inside the wholesale market are over 20 stalls specializing in tuna. In particular, Sanriku Shiogama Higashimono, the brand name given to big-eye tuna, is noted for its supreme freshness, fattiness, color and gloss. Caught during the October to December period, this prized product is only available for culinary enjoyment during this brief season.
