    Some have asked what Kamaboko is...Kamaboko is made from all natural ingredients :wild white fish, egg whites, salt, sugar, fish sauce and Japanese sake.

    It contains no artificial coloring or seasonings, and no preservatives. Kamaboko's white color and unique texture come from all-natural ingredients and are the result of interaction of fish, water, and salt during the production process.
    This is the website to the museum we will visit.http://www.kamaboko.com/english...­
