When we reach at Oshamambe Port in Hokkaido, the workers were already starting to unload the scallops into conveyor belts. Most of these workers are elderly women. Due to the -6 degree Celsius weather, the workers had to dip their hands into hot water to warm their hands.

Grill scallops anyone

The scallops with lips are two years old and they are just out of the boat. They simply grilled it on hot plate and it taste so good! They are one of the best scallops I have tasted in my life.
