In Okinawa, Japan giant clams and conches are usually found in seafood markets.  All parts of the conch meat are edible. In East Asian cuisines, this seafood is often cut into thin slices and then steamed or stir-fried. 

The large conch shells have been used as trumpets (Horagai) in Japan for many centuries. The instrument, which has served a number of purposes throughout Japanese history, has been given a number of Japanese names depending on its function.
