I went to Onjuku town in Chiba Prefecture that has the largest catch of Japanese lobster in Japan because Price of Aqualine Toll has been reduced to 800 yen from 1st Aug 2009 and Japanese Lobster season began from Sep.

My major objective is to grab a lobster by the hand and eat grilled lobster on the spot at Lobster festival in Onjuku. But Although it has been only thirty minites since the festival started, lobster was sold out when I arrived there. Only smell of grilled Lobster was hanging in the air.

But the story didn't end there.
having pulled myself together, I went to Kanefuku Shokudo knowned for lobster set to have a nice lunch. Of course I ordered a lobstger set. I felt it look like red flowers are in bloom on the table. Also I impressed with its good taste.

By the way, because of its beautiful swimming beach, I want to come to there again next summer with swimsuit.
