A: You Are Self-Reliant, Independent, and Slightly Stubborn.

You are an honest and straightforward person. When you decide to do something, you're the kind of person that perseveres until you achieve it.

You are also very particular about the taste of food—more so than other people. We recommend the Kokon Kamaboko (pink and white) (Japanese), a dish filled with the tradition and skill of Suzuhiro's artisans (see Suzuhiro Kamaboko's English homepage).

These artisans put their heart and soul into making each kamaboko fish cake by hand. Moreover, their products are made with carefully selected white-fleshed fish. This dish is perfect for celebrating the New Year with osechi cuisine.

Chemical seasonings (i.e. MSG) and food colorings are never used, which allows you to savor the taste of fresh ingredients.

For an everyday dish, we also recommend the Kinjyo Kamaboko (pink and white) (Japanese).

B: You Are Relaxed, Easygoing, and Do Things at Your Own Pace.

You're the type of person who believes it's important to enjoy every minute of life. You also love eating delicious food.

For your personality, we recommend the Artisan Oden Set (Japanese), a superb oden dish filled with a variety of tasty ingredients (see Suzuhiro Kamaboko's English homepage).

This product contains "ganmo" or deep-fried tofu mixed with other ingredients, "bakudan" or hard-boiled egg wrapped in deep-fried pureed fish meat (surimi), and a deep-fried fishcake with corn called "morokoshiage."

For foodies like you, this filling dish will satisfy both your stomach and soul!

C: You Are Gentle, Reliable, and Capable.

You are seen as an older brother or sister to those around you. Your gentle heart never hesitates to help someone in need.

However, there are times when people are overly dependent on you. It can become hard to handle.

In these instances, it's a good idea to treat yourself to some bite-sized Puchi Kama kamaboko (see Suzuhiro Kamaboko's English homepage).

Puchi Kama comes with two different fillings: full-flavored cheese, and spicy cod roe (mentaiko) with mayonnaise. They make ideal snack pairings with beer and wine.

Perfect for large groups, the Puchikama Party Box is a great gift to bring to a Christmas or New Year's party!

D: You Are a Proud Person Who Hates to Lose.

You're a hard worker who's not afraid to endure some hardship if it's for a good cause.

There's a noble aura about you, so we think that the Kokon Kamaboko Kanoko (Japanese) is a perfect match for your taste. (Please also see Suzuhiro Kamaboko's English homepage).

This kamaboko loaf has a fan-like shape and is topped with green, pink, and white-colored fish paste. It's characterized by the intricate lattice-like pattern on top.

We also recommend the Koki Datemaki, which has a sophisticated taste and is beautiful to look at.

E: You Take Swift Action When Something Catches Your Attention.

You love anything that's new. You're an adventure seeker who sets off to new destinations and travel locations without hesitation.

You have a pure heart and hold on to dreams and romantic pursuits. However, there's a side of you that gets bored easily.

Our recommendation is the Tairyo Banzai Kamaboko (12 pieces) (Japanese), which features four unique flavors (see Suzuhiro Kamaboko's English homepage).

You can compare and enjoy various flavors, including yuzu citrus, red bream fish flakes, chili, and ginger. Each piece of kamaboko is individually wrapped with an adorable fish motif.

If you're interested in trying a new flavor, we also recommend the Shiso Kaori Maki, a special kamaboko dish accented with shiso (perilla) leaves.

In addition to the products we introduced today, Suzuhiro sells other delicious kamaboko and nerimono delicacies.

The shop is lined with signature favorites, such as kamaboko served on a board, as well as sausages made from fish paste. You'll be sure to find something that suits your tastes!
