Why do Japanese consume so much fish?
The world average for fish consumption is around 16kg or 35.3lbs per year. In Japan it's a whopping 69.1kg or 152.3lbs per year! Where did this amount of consumption come from? The answer lies in Japanese law. Until 1872, it was illegal to eat any four-legged animal in Japan because it was against Buddhist principles. Fish was the primary source of protein for Japanese so it became ingrained into the Japanese diet. Fish accounts for up to 40% of their protein intake!
There is a saying in Japanese, "Everytime you taste the first food of the season (hatsumono), you add 75 days to your life." If you want to add many days to your life, definitely check out Anago-ya Ginza Hirai. They have a wide variety of fresh saltwater eel dishes for you to choose from! [Anago-ya Ginza Hirai/銀座あなご屋ひらい]
