Striving to conjure a sense of samurai Japan, Makigarinabe is a meaty hotpot dish, derived in concept from the famous hunt carried out by the samurai Minamoto-no-Yoritomo.
As well as being a well-loved local food, Makigarinabe is traditionally served at the local 'obon' festival, held in autumn each year.
The dish is also widely available in restaurants and accommodation facilities in more urban areas, with ingredients differing from place to place (beef, pork, wild boar, duck meat, etc.).
