A Culinary Adventure at Choshi Fishing Harbor

In early May, I had the pleasure of visiting Choshi Fishing Harbor to savor some delectable seafood cuisine. Located at the mouth of the Tone River in Choshi City, which lies in the northeast of Chiba Prefecture, this bustling harbor has a rich history and a vibrant seafood scene.

The Harbor’s Legacy

Choshi Fishing Harbor has a storied past. For 11 consecutive years until 2022, it held the distinction of being Japan’s largest fish landing port. Although it relinquished that title in 2023, it remains an essential hub for fishermen and seafood enthusiasts alike.

Exploring ‘Miura’ Restaurant

 During my visit, I dined at the renowned ‘Miura’ restaurant. Nestled near the harbor, ‘Miura’ is a favorite among locals and tourists alike. Its menu boasts an array of mouthwatering fish dishes, each prepared with precision and care.
