The sea around Ise-Shima and its vast kelp forests are famous for high quality abalone, which has been supplied to the Imperial Court and Shinto shrines since ancient times. Each natural abalone is packed with the flavor of the sea, carefully harvested by hand from the picturesque sea floor by traditional divers.
The word “isobue” in “Isobue Abalone” comes from the whistling sound traditional divers make when breathing on a dive, and it was selected as one of the 100 Sounds of Japan.
This beautiful sound of Ise-Shima is accompanied by the sound of the waves crashing against the shore.
We gave it the name Isobue Abalone in the hope that you will enjoy the briny aroma, firm texture, and rich savory flavor, as well as evoke a sense of Ise-Shima and the sound of isobue.
