Food where Tsu is the birthplace
  • Tenmusu
  • Strawberry daifuku(There are stores all over the country that have announced their origin, and "Toraya Honke" in Tsu City is one of them. I don't know exactly.)
  • Miso katsu(There are various theories)
  • Hitsumabushi(There are various theories)

The former Tsu city area is the largest in Japan by population ratio.eelIt is a city with many shops, and the eel consumption per capita is the highest in Japan.[22].. This originates from the fact that the Todo clan in the Edo period encouraged eel food to enhance the nourishment and morale of the feudal clan, and gathered eel restaurants underneath Tsu Castle from various places. Previously, there were eel farms around Tsu City with that remnant,Isewan TyphoonAnd many of them went out of business. However, the eel eating habits, which had become widespread among citizens, remained. Unlike other areas, eel is a popular food in Tsu City, especially in the downtown area.Daimon-MarunouchiIn areas such as districts, before the steep price of eel began in the 2010s, even the finest "extraordinary" rice bowl (with eel cut into slices, with liver soup) could be eaten for about 1,500 yen.[22]


Tsugyoza is a fried gyoza made by wrapping bean paste in a large skin with a diameter of 15 cm and fried in oil. Originated from school lunch, 1985It was devised around that time and is still being offered today. It has been sold at restaurants and events since 2008. So-calledClass B gourmetIs one of the.
