Himeji FoodsHatoya Kamaboko Fish Cakes

In 1946, soon after the end of World War II, Hattoya was founded by its founder, a chef, to take advantage of the abundance of fish from the Harima-nada Sea.
Even in the 1950s, when frozen surimi (minced fish paste) began to grow in popularity, Hatoya stubbornly stuck to its handmade method, and this product was presented to the Crown Prince's Palace, and awarded the Emperor's Cup at the Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries Festival.
Long-selling hatomin fried vegetables and other food items are very popular, and dozens of varieties of kamaboko fish cakes are available at the store.
At Hatoya's activity center, visitors can use minced fish to form kamaboko and chikuwa (different shapes of fish cake). It's an item that's sure to taste better when you make it with your own hands, and sure to be a great memory for your visit.
Come try making kamaboko and chikuwa by hand at Hatoya, this long-established shop in Himeji where tradition and history are still alive!
