Uomata is a Japanese restaurant in Saga’s Karatsu City, which was established over 70 years ago and specializes in abalone dishes. Also known as “awabi,” abalone are sea snails, which take about 5 years to reach their full size and must be hand-harvested by experienced divers. An Asian delicacy, abalone is highly-coveted in Japan with a price tag that reflects the high-end nature of the seafood. Abalone are also considered auspicious, or lucky, by some. The shop owner, who has a deep love and appreciation for awabi dishes and the long history of abalone in Japan, sources his abalone from the Genkai region.
