Fugu, enjoyed as part of entertainment, celebrations, banquets, as well as during New Year's celebrations as food that brings luck and good fortune, is commonly served with Japanese sake, which complements it well.

History of Torafugu Cuisine

Pufferfish (“fugu”) has a long history in Japan as food, dating back to the Jomon era about 10,000 years ago from which fugu bones have been unearthed. During the Azuchi-Momoyama period (1598 - 1600), a significant number of samurai lost their lives eating fugu, which resulted in Toyotomi Hideyoshi, a feudal warlord, issuing a law prohibiting fugu consumption in order to prevent death by fugu poison.

Later, with the invention of miso paste and soy sauce during the Edo period (1603 - 1867) and the general development of Japanese food culture, fugu became increasingly popular and eventually, in the Meiji period (1868 - 1912), the prime minister at the time lobbied to lift the ban on fugu, having been so impressed by the delicacy. Since the 1940’s, upscale fugu cuisine has gained a place in the national cuisine, with the center of fugu culture being Yamaguchi and Osaka prefectures.
Full fugu course meals spread and became popular across the country.

Torafugu Nutrients

Torafugu is rich in collagen and protein, and has less calories and fat compared to other fish, which makes it a perfect fish for good health and beauty.

Prepared by
Licensed Artisans

In the past, some people died from fugu poisoning.
However, safety has been improved thanks to findings from Japanese fugu poison research and government public health regulations specifying which species and which of their body parts that can be brought to market. In 1949, the examination for licensed fugu cooks was standardized. At Genpin Fugu, more than 130 licensed artisan cooks with expertise and skill prepare and sell fugu safely for our customers’culinary safety and delight.
