Fukagawa-don is a bowl of rice covered with deep-fried asari clams mixed with scallions and seasoned with miso. Green onions are being then added to the dish.

Initially, Fukagawa-don was considered to be a fast food and it was consumed by fishermen. As the shellfish were easy to get and quite affordable for most of the population, this dish became a significant source of nourishment for the population of Tokyo.

Before the seashore of Tokyo Bay was restored, there were plenty of short-neck clams (asari) and hard clams (hamaguri) near the mouth of the Sumida River (part of present Koto City). Fukagawa-don is a traditional and easy dish in this region. Nowadays there are lots of styles for seasoning and serving fukagawa-don.
