Hokkaido, Japan’s northernmost main island, produces some of the world’s best seafood including konbu (kelp). 90% of Japan’s konbu is harvested in Hokkaido and although it’s most often used for making umami-rich dashi (broth), here it’s been reinvented into a delicious and crunchy snack.
Our producer, Hokkaido Hinode Shokuhin, uses locally harvested konbu and seasons it with their original broth made of soy sauce mixed with a konbu, dried bonito and shiitake dashi, before grilling it to add extra aroma, crunch and flavor.
Hokkaido Hinode Shokuhin is known for their additive-free snacks and is located in Nemuro City, the easternmost city in Japan. Tourists trek to Nemuro City to capture the first glimpse of sunrise as the sun peaks over the eastern horizon and to enjoy the city’s fresh local seafood.
Suggested uses: Enjoy as is.
