“Shonan oden”met a big accident due to Tokyo Olympic Games in 1964.
“Shonan oden”is a general name for the entire open-door oden in Enoshima Area, especially Enoshima Benten-bridge(around 50 oden restaurants). The characteristic of “Shonan oden”is the broths taken from fish“niboshi” and chiken “torigara”and not from fish “katsuobushi” and seaweed “konbu”. Lots of fish and seafood and vegetables are used for the materials of oden because of the location surrounded by the Sagami Bay and Shonan Plateau. Stomach-filling salty oden for the common people seemed so popular. But Enoshima was chosen to be a site for the Olympic yacht-racing. And the Open-door oden restaurants were considered not proper for the after-the-war, modern Olympic Games. They were forced to transfer as a group to Tsujido Seaside. And this is the beginning of Tsujido, Shonan Oden Center. After 50 years, however, only four restaurants remain.
