Nozawana is a type of leafy mustard green from the same turnip family as daikon (Japanese radish). It’s a staple in Nagano Prefecture where its mild tasting leaves are often finely chopped and pickled. This special nozawana is flavored with traditional Shinshu (the olden name for Nagano) flavors including sesame oil and spicy chili peppers.
Takeuchi Nosan’s nozawana pickles are pickled for a short time to allow for the flavor to be tasted as naturally and fresh as possible - straight from the field to your table. The nozawana is harvested before dawn and only the best leaves are selected to be pickled that same day. The leaves are first cooled in ice water to preserve the bright green color, crispy texture and freshly picked flavor. They are then expertly pickled before being washed using underground water in both a special washing machine and by hand, with only the highest quality product being selected for packaging. This is all done with traceability from the quality of the soil during cultivation through to production and packaging.
Surrounded by beautiful nature, Takeuchi Nosan is located deep in the mountains of Nagawa-machi Chiisagata-gun, in the center of Nagano Prefecture. During the Edo period (1603-1867), the area flourished as "Wada-juku," the 28th post station located on the Nakasendo trail which connected Kyoto with Edo (now Tokyo). The entire Nakasendo route in Wada has been designated as a national historic site.
