Speaking of Pacific saury, “Meguro pacific saury” is famous. Due to the influence of Corona, it has been canceled one after another since 2020, but this year it seems that an event limited to Meguro residents in Tokyo was held. In 2019, saury from Iwate Prefecture was sent, along with sudachi sudachi that goes well with saury, along with sudachi ambassadors from Tokushima Prefecture, and daikon radish from Tochigi Prefecture. Since there is no sea in Meguro, you can’t catch any sea fish, let alone saury. The origin is from the story of Japanese culture called rakugo.

One of the rakugo performances is “Meguro pacific saury”. When an old great lord called a daimyo made a detour to Meguro for falconry, he was hungry, but there was no bento box, so the common people just grilled it over a charcoal fire. The lord remarked that this was delicious. At that time, saury was a common food. It rarely enters the mouth of a great person. When the lord returned to his mansion, he requested saury, but the servants chose the fresh saury caught at Nihonbashi Uogashi, and carefully removed the bones. I spent a lot of time and effort cooking the saury. So the lord said, “After all, saury is only available in Meguro!” In fact, there are many ways to cook saury, such as broiling or canning, but in the end, saury is best when grilled or charcoal-grilled with salt!

This is a forest with signs of autumn. In the near future, there may be no autumn and spring due to climate change, so it is better to take pictures of autumn leaves and cherry blossoms.
