Kanagawa Prefecture (神奈川県), located just south of Tokyo, is the perfect getaway from the bustling city with its beautiful nature and picturesque beaches. It's home to the resort area of Hakone, which has some of the region’s best onsens (natural hot springs), while the historic town of Kamakura has many Buddhist temples and the famous Kamakura Daibutsu (Great Buddha). 

Its capital, Yokohama, is one of Japan’s most active international ports, resulting in a melting pot of Japanese, European, and Chinese cultures.

Kangawa’s food is a reflection of the area’s diverse cultural influences - a curation of which are available in our Kanagawa Nourishing Essentials Care Package: Seaside Gateway to Japan.

FEATURING:

KAMAKURA DAIBUTSU CANDY (鎌倉大仏あめ)
Producer: Dagashiya Kamakura Hase
Ingredients: Sugar, starch syrup, oligosaccharide (dietary fiber) 

These local candies are modeled after the Kamakura Daibutsu (Great Buddha), one of Kanagawa's most popular and awe-inspiring sights. A modeler from Takaoka City in Toyama Prefecture was asked to create a miniature representation of the Kamakura Daibutsu which captures its likeness and helps to spread the Buddha’s wishes for strong relationships and good fortune.

NATTO KOJI PASTE (納豆麹)
Producer: Toyokuniya
Ingredients: Natto (from Kanagawa), soy sauce, rice, rice malt

Natto, a classic Japanese food made from fermented soybeans, can be an acquired taste. However, Toyokuniya uses a double fermentation process to remove the odor and stickiness, making this savory paste easy for everyone to enjoy. They also use a rare "Tsukui soybean" cultivated on their family-farm. Delicious on rice, as a spread or in marinades. 

IWAI’S SESAME CHILI OIL (純正ごま辣油)
Producer: Iwai
Ingredients: Sesame oil, chili pepper

For over 150 years, Iwai has been producing their traditional sesame oil in Yokohama. The sesame seeds are carefully roasted before being pressed twice then filtered to remove any impurities. The result is a richly nutty taste combined with a subtle spiciness and gentle heat from the added chili peppers. Its flavors are perfect in stir fries, on eggs or tofu, in dressings or in dipping sauces.

WIND SOMEN (風のそうめん)
Producer: Kaneko Seimen
Ingredients: “Norin 61” wheat flour (from Kanagawa), salt 

Kaneko Seimen has been hand crafting their noodles in the rural town of Nakai since 1877. Their somen, very thin white noodles only 1mm in diameter, are made from a whole grain domestic wheat called “norin 61”. Unlike dry, brittle noodles, this somen is dried naturally by the wind of fans to maintain a soft, fresh texture similar to raw noodles.

BROWN RICE AND MISO ENERGY BAR FLAVORED WITH UMEBOSHI AND DRIED BONITO (玄米 × 味噌 シリアルバー さっぱり梅かつお)
Producer: Japan Energy Food
Ingredients: Glucose syrup (manufactured in Japan), brown rice, miso (includes soybeans), beet sugar, umeboshi (Japanese ume plums, shiso, salt), yukari (shiso, plum vinegar, salt), canola oil, dried bonito (skipjack tuna) flakes 

The ingredients for these unique energy bars are based on the traditional Japanese diet: domestic brown rice and miso. The bars are then flavored with classic Japanese seasonings including umeboshi (Japanese pickled plums), bonito (skipjack tuna) flakes and yukari (dried and powdered pickled shiso (perilla leaves) mixed with salt). The result is a sweet yet umami-rich energy bar that combines the flavors of a complete Japanese meal.  

TOCHU TEA (杜仲茶)
Producer: Hekizanen
Ingredients: Eucommia tree leaves (caffeine-free)

Although most tea produced in Japan is green tea, there are other unique whole leaf teas such as this tochu tea made from 100% eucommia tree leaves. Eucommia bark has been used as a medicinal herb for centuries. This tochu tea incorporates the leaves of the plant which are ground into a fine powder. The tea has a uniquely crisp flavor and is slightly bitter with a sweet, mild aftertaste.

*Recipes included: Chili Oil Tofu Donburi and Pork Belly Somen Chanpuru
