fishy record



Osaka can claim many records, a quick glance in the Guinness Book of Records will confirm this.

Its most impressive record was confirmed in the 1970s, when Norris McWhirter visited for a seafood lunch. Yes, for over 30 years, Osaka has proudly held the record for The World's Largest Wall-Mounted Crab. Forget Tallest Building, Biggest Park or Most Restaurants. Waste of time. Instead, Osaka went for The World's Largest Wall-Mounted Crab – and won. The crab even moves.

It will come as little surprise that the restaurant inside prides itself on its crab dishes. Just as the restaurant below prides itself on its dragon dishes. I ate their recently and I must say, it was rather tasty. A bit like chicken.

As soon as I saw the picture I knew exactly where you were. Didn't realise it had such an auspicious award as well though.

I'm sure they have a crab just as big at the end of Teramachi Dori in Kyoto!

I may be wrong though...

Looks like the crab near nipponbashi station... I'm quite sure there's an identical one just about a hundred meters up the street from there. They also have an equally huge octopus!
