Kitaibaraki is located in the northernmost part of Japan's Ibaraki Prefecture, and is blessed with excellent fishing grounds. The city has a long history of fishing for anglerfish, which was offered to the Tokugawa Shogun in the Edo period (1603-1868). The fishermen of Kitaibaraki used to eat anglerfish nabe hot pot to warm themselves on the boat, and the dish became available at local minshuku inns and restaurants. This culinary culture eventually spread nationwide. Even today, there are many restaurants that serve authentic anglerfish dishes, and the anglerfish nabe hot pot of Kitaibaraki is said to be the best in Japan.
