Japanese people love crabs. When I go to an aquarium and see crabs, I think they look delicious... and I think many Japanese think the same way. In Japan, crabs are more popular than lobsters, and we can mainly eat 3 kinds of crabs. Snow crabs are middle size with long legs, mainly lives in Japan Sea area. Rock crabs are smaller size and covered with hard hair, and mainly caught in the sea around Hokkaido Island (the North Island). King crabs are big size with very long legs, mainly caught in Okhotsk Sea.
Crab restaurant, Kanidoraku (Kani is crabs in Japanese) is one of the famous crab restaurants in Japan. You can easily find them with their shop sigh.
We went to eat at the lunch time. I ordered...
