Maine Sea Urchin is closely related to the Hokkaido sea urchin species found in Hokkaido, Japan. Petite in size, this variety produces a small "tongue" and is referred to as "Bafun" in Japanese.
Maine Sea Urchin is highly prized throughout Japan with the majority of the production exported weekly to Toyosu market. Luckily, before that step, Regalis hand picks the nicest trays for our American customers. We receive fresh shipments daily ensuring we’re catering the very best quality.
This item has two variations to choose from:

*Please note that this tray can shift during shipping in which the uni may shift slightly.
