There are several places in Japan where shirasu gets collected, but one main area is the Kamakura/Shonan area in Kanagawa prefecture. The Spring Shirasu that gets collected from mid March has a sweet aftertaste to it, and is eaten mainly around April to May.

In the Kamakura area, many Japanese restaurants serve shirasu bowls during this season, so let's take a look at a few!

The concept of this restaurant is to serve dishes that can only be made in Kamakura. Therefore, the ingredients such as vegetables and shirasu all come from Kamakura. The shirasu bowl uses "Shonan Shirasu" that the chef gets every morning during the spring season from the local fisherman.

They have both raw shirasu bowls and boiled shirasu bowls in the menu, as well as other traditional Japanese dishes using freshly picked Kamakura vegetables.
