Examples of Satoumi Creation

  • Tetsuo Yanagi


The giant clam has been a famous special product at Kuwana district in Aichi Prefecture. Kuwana is located at the mouth of large three rivers, Kiso, Nagara, and Ibi, and was prosperous as the port that connected Atsuta and Kuwana. A large tidal flat has developed near the mouths of the three large rivers and has become a good fishing ground for corbicula, short-necked clam, and giant clam.
