Add to Cart
Young wakame harvested from the end of April to the start of May each year has the honor of being called the "first sprouts". This domestically harvested wakame is sun-dried and tenderly finished by local fishermen, preserving the natural salty and bracing aroma of the sea. This product enhances food with the pure flavor of wakame when simply sprinkled over fresh rice and retains its taste even when mixed. Momi wakame makes a lovely topper for Japanese cuisine and adds saline depth to salads or pasta, conveying a stronger aroma than the simple wakame used for miso soup!

Domestic Momi Wakame Small Tin is produced in Fukui prefecture.
As the oldest uni merchant in Japan, Tentatsu devotes itself even today to a philosophy of honor and craft in products made to please a lord. The multi-century history of Tentatsu is intimately tied to that of Fukui, Echizen, and the feudal lords of Matsutaira who once presided over it. As an official merchant of the domain, the company was crowned Tenno-ya (King of Heaven's Shop) in 1804, with a goal of producing a long-lasting uni product for wartime. This mission led to Tentatsu's original invention and famed product: salt-stored uni. The company's current title hails from the nickname "Tentatsu", given in the Meiji era, and its shio uni products are neatly wrapped in a reproduced map of Fukui castle dating from the Edo period.
