Yummy Factory Tour at Mentai Park Kobe Sanda
Yo! It’s Mr. Wada back on duty. I am going to share our trip to Mentai Park Kobe Sanda this time.
About Mentai Park Kobe Sanda
Meintaiko is salted roe of Alaska Pollock (great combination with rice). Mentai Park Kobe Sanda is actually a part of a Mentaiko factory where we can take a look at how it is being processed.

Enter Mentai Park Kobe Sanda
As you step in to the building, Mentaiko class begins. It’s quite informative and educational.
The path is quite short actually. Anyway let’s take a look. It really got me hungry though!
Sample time. Yeeey! I looked forward to it badly. Go pick a piece of Mentaiko. Yum yum. Now I want more.
It’s lunch time. What should I get…..to be frank there aren’t much options aside from Mentaiko stuff. Well, that’s what I am here for. Why not?
Fresh Mentaiko is available at a reasonable price. It’d be nice for souvenir. Meintaiko is available at every supermarket in Japan but this one especially tastes great.
Though it was a quick tour, there are many places to visit around this area such as MITSUI OUTLET PARK MARINE PIA KOBE (most of places are for shopping). Perhaps it would nice to stop at this Mentai Park Kobe Sanda on the way.
See you around!
Looks interesting, but something smells fishy… I’m curious to know if there are any ways of telling what seafood products are more sustainable than others in Japan. Something like a ranking system on labels in supermarkets, for example.
