Hotaruika (Firefly Squid) "Toyama fishing traditions dating from the Edo period"

Namerikawa is a city that overlooks Toyama Bay, where shoals of firefly squid surface annually between spring and early summer. Fishing is done at midnight when the firefly squid move towards the coastline to spawn. Before spawning, fleshy squid are full of umami flavor. The locals have developed a wide variety of delicious methods of preparing the squid for eating.

"Doors to explore 'NIPPON'", a special program that showcases scenes hand-picked from NHK's "SHIN NIHON FUDOKI", a show that conveys the beautiful scenery and profound culture of Japan, is screened on five TV monitors installed in the departure area of Haneda Airport.
