Sea of Ariake cuisine

Various species of gobi, other fish and shellfish found aplenty in the Sea of Ariake. The sea has vast differences of sea level height at low and high tides that at low tide, vast expanses of seabed become exposed as mud flats. Many of the fish living in this area have strange appearances but certainly taste delicious. The locals refer to the Sea Of Ariake as the ‘Front Sea’ and refer to these creatures as ‘Fruits of the Front Sea’.
