Kobashira |round clams|

Round clams are found mainly in the central part of Honshu Island and are considered a very popular shellfish. The tongue is called Aoyagi and one of two muscle parts is called Kobashira. I was asked why is the seaweed not closed and the answer is: when it’s so crisp it isn’t pliable and that’s a good sign.
