This is the king of the crab that is called snow crabs.
These were cooked in Shibaya last night.

Snow crabs get a different name according to where they are caught.
In Ishikawa Prefecture they are called "kanougani", while those landed in Fukui Prefecture are known as "echizengani".
Also, they are called "matsubagani" in Kyoto and Hyougo.

Crab is one of the Japanese people's favorite winter foods.
