Which prefecture in Japan eats such eels the most? , NTT Town Page investigated. Let's set aside the legitimate question of why we investigated.
According to the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, the amount of "eel kabayaki" purchased annually by the location of the prefectural office and one household in an ordinance-designated city is 6,927 yen in Hamamatsu City, which is 4.5 times the lowest in Naha City (1,538 yen). was. This is followed by Kyoto City (5,032 yen), Otsu City (4,293 yen), Osaka City (4,291 yen), and Nagoya City (4,278 yen), followed by the top 10 cities of Tokai and Kinki. As expected, Hamamatsu's famous production area is by far the best!
In addition, looking at the number of yellow pages registrations for "eel dishes" in the last 10 years, it has been on a downward trend since 2002, falling below 2,993 and 3,000 in 2009. On the other hand, looking at the number of registrations by prefecture per 100,000 population, the top rankings are Shizuoka (6.06), Yamanashi (5.33), Tokyo (5.20), Gunma (4.73), and Mie (4.53). ) Is ranked high.
It goes without saying that Shizuoka Prefecture is strong, but Yamanashi and Gunma are quite surprising. I wondered if there are many eel shops in hot places, but if you have any ideas, I'd be happy if you could tell me secretly. Ah, I want to eat eel.
