Hiroo Crab Festival (Hiroo Kegani Matsuri)
Many fresh marine products like hairy crabs are boiled in a giant pot. Let’s taste Hiroo’s products!
The Hairy Crab Festival is an event that offers fresh marine products caught in Hiroo. Hairy crabs boiled in a giant pot of 2 meters in diameter are particularly popular, and are quickly sold out starting from the largest ones down to the smallest. Marine products of Hiroo including shishamo smelt, whelk, squid and octopus in season are offered, and one can grill and eat them at some shops on the festival site. There are events like crab eating competitions in which participants eat as many crabs as they can within 5 minutes, a lottery with great prizes, and events for children. These are very exciting events for visitors.
