The sea urchin: a thorny, mysterious sea creature whose umami-packed meat is loved in Japan, and is used in food ranging from sushi to traditional cuisine to even desserts. In Japan, people buy bento boxes at stations and enjoy them on the train as they travel, and at Kuji Station in Iwate, you can get a bento box packed with local sea urchin. Join us as we ride the local Sanriku Railway running along the coast and take in a scenic view of the Pacific with one of those bento boxes.
