Shellfish Digging and Miso soup;

*Shellfish Digging*
White going home from errand, we spotted some people were digging shellfish. The shellfish is Cyrenidae Graywe call it 'シジミ, shijimi'. 
This particular shellfish said to have the medicinal effect of enhancing the liver function and live in the brackish waters (of an estuary). I knew they live in the area 'estuary' which has water that has more salinity than fresh water. My husband proudly taught me the area is called '汽水域, kisuiiki' in Japanese :-)

With this shellfish, we normally cook miso-soup. I had urge to eat bowl of conger eel and rice. Believe me, they are yummy.
Thank you SO much for stopping by;
