kurobuta 黒豚 black pig, black pork
often prepared as kakuni 角煮
Speciality of Kagoshima and Okinawa. The pigs are Berkshire and have black hair, but the skin is pink. They have short legs, stubby snouts and upright ears.
These pigs had been given to the Ryukyu kingdom in 1800 from the government of England and some pigs made it to Satsuma (now Kagoshima prefecture).
It takes longer to raise and is more difficult to bring to reproduce. But the pork tasts much better than from a white pig. It is marbled with soft white fat and has a rich taste.

konkatsu, kon-katsu 婚活,婚カツ Marriage Hunting
結婚活動 kekkon katsudoo
restaurants, shrines, temples and other open spaces are trying to invite lonely people interested in marriage to meet and chat.
When a couple finds each other, they go eat a tonkatsu ... what else !

The word surfaced in 2007, after a book was published "Konkatsu no jidai 婚カツの時代" (The era of marriage-hunting), by Masahiro Yamada and Toko Shirakawa.

HAIKU and Senryu



木がらしにくすくす豚の寝たりけり
kogarashi ni kusu-kusu buta no netari keri

in winter wind
the pig giggles
in his sleep


This is only the second haiku that I have translated by Issa that mentions a pig. Shinji Ogawa notes,
"From China and Holland, pigs were imported to Nagasaki in the middle of the Edo period but propagated only sporadically until the Meiji period because they belonged to the 'foul food' category (any meat of a four-legged animal was considered 'foul food')."
