In the latter Septemeber, “pacific saury festivals”(/Sanma matsuri) are held in a lot of areas nationwide. For example,6000 sauries were supplied for one of those festivals hosted in Tokyo near Tokyo Sky Tree from Oofunado city in Iwate pref. which is one of the damaged areas of 3.11 tsunami disaster in 2011. In addition, such a festival was held in Niiza City which received gifts of about 6,400 sauries from Ishinomaki City in Miyagi pref. which was one of the major damaged areas and is rebuilding its industry rapidly. A lot of people visited the festival and enjoyed the delicious sauries with a lot of fat in season. The facilitators also hosted charity raising and a lot of visitors there donated money which would be used for rebuilding and saving the victims of the tragedy. Sanma (pacific sauries) are quite popular food in Japan especially in autumn when they become ripe for the taking with a lot of fat.
