Yokosuka, Japan – Kanagawa Prefecture Pt.8

So it turns out that most cities and towns in Japan have a mascot and regional dish. Yokosuka’s mascot is a duck and the regional dish is curry. Obviously the duck has something to do with regional naval history but I’m not sure about the curry.

One our friends is from Kumamoto and their town mascot is a bear. I forget what the regional dish is.

Do you have a regional mascot and dish?

I grew up in Baltimore, Maryland our regional dish is steamed blue crab or crab cakes. Our official state bird is the Oriole and unofficial the Raven.
