A direct sales shop selling fresh seafood from the waters around Bose Island

Himeji Maedre Market is about a 15-minute walk from Sanyo Electric Railway Shirahamanomiya Station, right next to the ocean. This facility is directly managed by the Bose Fisheries Cooperative, and sells seafood and processed products caught in the Harimanada Sea, including Bose Island.

Bosejima is one of the islands located in the central part of the Ieshima Islands, southwest of the center of Himeji City. The surrounding sea area is also known as a treasure trove of seafood.

In fact, the island boasts a thriving fishing industry, boasting a catch that ranks first and second in Hyogo Prefecture. Himeji Maedore Market is where you can buy fresh fish landed on Bose Island.

There is a fish tank in the store, where they sell live seafood.

In the spring, you can enjoy ``Hanahime Sawara'' from Himeji (Hime) caught using the Hanatsugi fishing method (Hana), in the summer you can enjoy the ``Shirasagi Conger'', which is pure white like Himeji Castle, and in the fall, you can enjoy the fatty ``Boze Mackerel''. '', and in winter, we sell seasonal ingredients such as ``oysters,'' which have a rich flavor.

You can have your sashimi cooked or cooked on the spot.

The inside of the store, lined with fish tanks, is like a mini aquarium and is popular with children.

On the day of our interview, the menu included sashimi of flounder, abalone and turban shells, as well as butter-grilled sea bream, grilled turban shells, and sake-steamed clams. It's such a luxury to be able to eat freshly made food.

It's free to have sashimi made. Items that require cooking can be ordered with a cooking fee (220 yen, tax included) in addition to the fish fee.

You can eat the cooked fish at the Maedore Shokudo inside the store, so if you're interested in something, please go there.

In addition, we also sell prepared seafood and processed products. Conger conger, octopus, and squid tempura are lined up, and some customers are seen buying in bulk. We also recommend buying it as a side dish for dinner.

"Maedore Shokudo" where you can enjoy fresh seafood dishes

At the ``Maedore Shokudo'' inside the store, you can enjoy gozen and rice bowl dishes made with seasonal seafood. Enjoying freshly caught seafood is a unique charm of a market restaurant. When you come to our store, be sure to try our food.

The popular menu item ``Seafood Bowl'' is available as a single item (1,650 yen, tax included) that includes miso soup and pickled vegetables, or as a set that includes mini udon noodles (1,900 yen, tax included).

On the day I visited, it was topped with eight types of seafood: salmon, tuna, amberjack, sweet shrimp, salmon roe, flounder, sea bream, and conger conger, making it a perfect meal!

All the toppings have a plump texture and are extremely fresh.<br>

``Boze mackerel'' and ``Banshu oyster'' that appear in winter are also popular. In particular, ``Bouze mackerel'' is a mackerel caught in the spring that is farmed and fed with natural sardines to make it even more delicious, and is characterized by its high fat content.

Be sure to try the ``Mackerel Sushi'' and ``Boze Gozen'' (3,000 yen, tax included).
