The deep sea fish called "anko" in Japanese (the goosefish or monkfish) is a representative fish of Ibaraki Prefecture, and ankonabe (goosefish stew) from the town of Oarai is a famous winter dish. The Oarai Anko Matsuri is held every year in November to celebrate the charms of the goosefish. At the festival venue, goosefish soup served from an enormous pot is on sale, and there are a variety of stage events, including live demonstrations of filleting a hanging goosefish. There are also local specialty products on sale, folk entertainment performances, and shows featuring heroes for children as well, attracting large crowds of visitors.
