Speaking of the Ukimido temple front, it is the Uotomi store which is the specialty store of the food using the fish of Lake Biwa.Some kinds of tsukudani（※1） are sold at this store. An eel is also sold in summer.And Funazushi(※2) is also sold in winter.
It seems that there are many people who buy Tsukudani at the Uotomi store after visiting to pray to Ukimido temple.The photograph of the tukudani of young sweetfish which I bought before is here.
A dish of tsukudani made from kombuTsukudani (佃煮, Tsukudani) is small seafood, meat or seaweed that has been simmered in soy sauce and mirin. High osmotic pressure preserves the ingredients. Its name originates from Tsukudajima, the island(in present-day Chūō, Tokyo) where it was first made in the Edo period. Many kinds of tsukudani are sold.Traditionally made tsukudani is preservable and has been favored as a storable side dish in Japanese kitchen since the Edo period.(sorce: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsukudani)
