I have been to the fishing with a father when I was children.
I was able to catch a horse mackerel and a cuttlefish then.
But it was difficult to catch an octopus.
In Japan, We catch the octopus with a spider hole.

I live in Kobe city.
Kobe is famous for takoyaki.
Have you eaten takoyaki?
When we eat takoyaki we dip the takoyaki in soup stock or sauce .
I like takoyaki dipped in sauce.

Thank you for reply, it was interesting. I didn't know what spider hole is.

When I was kid I often went to fishing with my 2 older brother. I did not liked fishing, but I liked going there with my brothers. I always got most fish also. I think I have had got only Crucian carp. We used to go fishing to 2 different forest lakes that was near. It was difficult to go there, because land was swampy, but there was a lot of fish.

I haven't ate takoyaki, but when I come to Kobe I surely will. ;)

No I`m not thinking to eat octopus in my life maybe in only one ocasion, if I get in the middle of the ocean and I don´t have any thing to eat probably I could eat octopus but only in this situation.

I mistook the word of spider hole.It means octopus pot.
Please eat takoyaki if you come to Kobe.
I think that you like it.

We eat a octopus in my country, so I was very surprised to heard that.

In your country, can you eat an octopus?

I was watching the travel channel today and I saw one person was eating octopus and squid ice cream. Is it true that you have octopus ice cream in Japan? :shock:

Why do you dislike an octopus that much?
Cannot you eat for reasons of the religions ?
Please teach it if good.

Although I know there is jellyfish ice cream, I didn't know such ice cream.
I searched the octopus and squid ice cream on google and found them.

:shock: Have you tried them, metaltoy? Seafood ice cream??? Hmmmmm... I wonder if this ice cream is kinda like flavored gelato that we have here in Berkeley. They have all kinda flavors they made from fruits, chocolate, wine, flower, seeds, etc. into gelato, yet they don't have seafood flavor.

Unfortunately, I have never tried them. I would like to try the jellyfish ice cream only.

Is there any reason for this specification, metaltoy? Also, I wonder if they've made ice cream out of umeboshi flavor. Now that's a good dare to ask someone to do.

I have seen people ate the ice cream with a happy smile on TV.
when I saw it, I really tried it one.
Although people who live by fishing are troubled by the jellyfish.
In recent years, many huge jellyfishes come to Sea of Japan and damage fishes. :(

Maybe someone already have made the umeboshi ice cream.
Since the flavor of umeboshi is popular in Japan such as chewing gum and candy.

:shock: Really? I heard umeboshi tastes really weird. One even said it tastes like old socks mixed with sweats. Is it true that only Japanese can take the taste of umeboshi? How often do you eat it, metaltoy? :?

I eat umeboshi almost every day.
But I don't eat a umeboshi only.
Usually I eat a umeboshi with a rice bowl of rice.
Since I eat it from a young age, I don't feel it tastes strange.
Umeboshi really suits with Japanese foods.
And since umeboshi has a long history, we know the best way to cook delicious meals with it.
