Whale meat has been eaten in the old province of Boso sinc olden times. The owner of the present shop, who makes the bento, has been eating it since childhood and tries to keep the taste "of his mother" for the bento.
The meat is first cooked and the scum taken off carefully, then it is simmered with sugar and soy sauce (Yamatoni, Yamato-ni 大和煮), adding shredded ginger and green shiso leaves to cover the raw taste of fish. Simmer for three hours at least and then let sit over night in the refrigerator.
Soboro "shredded whale meat" is also prepared with a special sauce.
The meat is put on the rice and in the middle a layer of scrambled egg to add some color. For a final touch, some of the sauce is poored over the whale meat.
