Today we focus on yellowtail, known as buri in Japanese. Favored in winter when it contains a higher fat content, the fish provides rich umami when grilled, simmered or eaten raw as sushi or sashimi. In western Japan, buri has long been thought to bring good fortune and is an essential part of the New Year tradition. Visit a Toyama Bay port that is one of the most popular for buri fishing, and explore Japan's unique buri culture.
