Tagawa Hormone Nabe

Tagawa City flourished 100 years ago as the “Coal Capital”. In Tagawa houses known as Tankonagaya (coal houses) lined up and the citizens of Tagawa lived a life full of energy. Around this time, a coal miner’s wife placed a paper cement bag into hot plate instead of using a nabe (pot) and cooked hormone. The paper absorbed the excess water turning the meat tender with a mild taste which gave this dish an appeal! Hormone is not expensive, delicious and even more was not an important part of the coal miner’s diet. In the blink of an eye, this dish became loved by the citizens in this area! This is how Hormone Yaki (fried hormone) as well as Hormone Nabe (hormone cooked in a pot) got its start at becoming a part of the local cuisine in Tagawa using local ingredients. After this, a number of shops sprang up specializing in these hormone dishes, some of which still operate today! In recent years, Tagawa Hormone is increasing in popularity as a healthy meal. Many female customers appreciate the fresh vegetables as well as the collagen that are offered in some of the hormone dishes!
