The octopus is a small octopus with a length of about 5 to 20 cm. Before the spawning season, the female torso (visible to the head) is filled with an oval egg, which looks like a grain of rice. Iidako inhabits sandy areas up to a depth of about 20m and prefers an inner bay environment, so the Bisan Seto area is a special Iidako production area. In Kagawa Prefecture, lobster fishing is performed from autumn to early spring, and lobster fishing as a leisure activity is also popular. A female with a good taste has a unique taste and can be said to be a representative taste of Kagawa in winter. In addition, it is used in various local dishes because the meat has a taste even if it is not good.

  • Iidako is small, so it's great to be able to bite it from your head. In addition, Kida prefecture prefers to eat “Iidako Oden,” which is a whole stewed whole as it is good from the meat. It is an ingredient that can be enjoyed in a variety of dishes, such as "Imo-Tako", a stewed dish with taro, "Vinegar miso sauce" with leeks and onions, sashimi, tempura, carpaccio. It also contains high-quality protein and taurine, so it can be said to be a seasonal taste that you should definitely eat in terms of health.
