What? Tiger sightings reported in Itoshima? Itoshima Now ventured out along Route 49 in Suenaga to follow up. Sure enough, we found a life-size tiger next to a sign advertising Tora Burgers! They no longer sell Tora (tiger) Burgers and assured us when they did, they weren’t made of tiger meat. Phew! But what a wonderful and huge butcher shop! In addition to beef, pork and chicken they also have snake, alligator, frog, and quail for those looking for something wild to put on the grill. The 29th of every month is “Meat (29 – Niku) Day,” when all products in the store are discounted by 10%.
