KAI Kaga's Winter Speciality “Shimenawa-Mushi” Steamed Crab

"Shimenawa-Mushi" is an unforgettable, dynamic cuisine prepared by steaming crab wrapped in a saltwater-soaked rope. This ensures that the crab meat is plump, soft, and filled with juicy umami after steaming, making for a dish of impeccable quality.
"Shimenawa" is a type of rope made from rice or hemp plants that is spirally woven into a shape similar to a skein of yarn. A sacred symbol, the shimenawa rope is traditionally used for decorating houses and shrines during New Years as it is said to guard against misfortunes and bad luck in the upcoming year. Inspired by this cultural symbol, our "Shimenawa-Mushi" dish is thus a suitably auspicious meal for celebrating a visit before or after the new year holidays.

"Kiwami" Premium Kaisaki course with fresh Snow crab

This is the most luxurious course that only uses fresh, live-purchased crabs for every dish. In addition to the Shimenawa-Mushi steamed, charcoal-grilled, fried, and sashimi crab dishes, you can also enjoy a unique snow crab hot pot and rice porridge.
