Sanma-sugata-zushi (saury sushi)
Mehari-zushi and sanma-sugata-zushi are definitely the two most typical foods of Kumano Shingu. Saury swim southward from off the coast of Sanriku to the Kumano Sea, carried by the cold ocean currents. Because the fish are massaged by the tides for a long time, their flesh is firm, and they have a lot of fat. They are highly prized as the best sushi fish for New Year's, and local residents are very fond of Kumano sanma-zushi as one of the local specialties.
