What is 3 year-torafugu ?

It’s Japanese pufferfish which is cultivated for 3 years.

(Normally takes just 2 years.)

This 1 more year gains more special flavors and  good textures on it.

We can coordinate3-year Torafugu farming and processing visit.  Some tourists are not allowed to eat torafugu in their country.

Eating fresh torafugu will be precious experience for them.

Visit Wakao Suisan who is professional torafugu processor

in Fukura.(Located in Minami Awaji city.)

They give us a lot of explanation about torafugu.

They cultivate 50000 torafugus in a year for 35 years.  It needs to have high skills to maintain their condition  for every season. They will be sensitive in Winter,

so less feeding is needed to keep them healthy.

In Spring the lose their weight and eat feeding again.  This cycle is important to grow them up. Surprisingly,  they also care torafugu’s teeth to protect from hurting

themselves. Mr.Wakao says, torafugu’s character will be calm  after pulling out their teeth.
