"First sprout" wakame is that harvested from the end of April to early May. These young plants convey the essential flavor of wakame and the briny seas of Japan more strongly than mature wakame used in miso soup. As a furikake topper, this wakame's fragrance lingers even after being rendered soft over hot rice. The gentle and hand-made approach to drying traps in the flavor, releasing sea-side aromas when enjoyed with pasta, salads or chilled tofu. ※For direct shipment only"

Domestically Grown Momi Wakame Large 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.
