Chikuwa

Chikuwa is a Japanese tube shaped food made from fish. In Yamaguchi, we happened by a place where there were several shops selling chikuwa. One of the old ladies working at a shop asked me, “What’s chikuwa in English?” To which I responded, “chikuwa.” And then she hit me! But whenever I bought chikuwa in the states, it was labeled as “Chikuwa.” I was being honest that it’s called “chikuwa” in english too!

Chikuwa on a string

A bunch of chikuwa pieces all strung up. This is not a typical way to serve or display chikuwa. It's just for show.

Making chikuwa

Making the chikuwa. Apparently they mix the fish with flour and such then wrap the mix around a stick and either boil or steam it.
