Ibukijima and Irico
Speaking of Ibukijima's industry is “irico fishing”.
Irico is an anchovy that has been boiled and dried.
On Ibukijima, the fishery and the processing factory are very close, and the fishermen's boss consistently produces from fishing to processing, so the freshness is outstanding!
The high-quality " Ibuki Iriko" is shipped thoughout the country.
One from the menu, “Kamaage Iriko Tempura” is a popular dish on the table on Ibukijima.
However, in fact, this “Kamaage Iriko” has rarely been eaten by any Kagawa residents other than Ibukijima!
It's a dish that you can eat only on Ibukijima.
The reason is Ibuki Irikoi's characteristic, its freshness.
“Kamaage iriko” is an anchovy that was boiled in a pot within 30 minutes from landing.
In other words, only Ibukijima people can usually eat this Iriko.
This time, local mothers will provide such a precious “Kamaage Iriko tempura” at the Setouchi Triennale 2019!
The state of Iriko fishing and the summertime of Ibukijima, which is the best season to the fishing, are also introduced on the blog "Exploring Setouchi".
