"Shichimi Togarashi" is a Japanese pepper scent that was born in Yakukenbori in Tokyo in the early Edo period and was introduced to Kyoto and spread from the front of Kiyomizu-dera, the birthplace of "Kyoto Shichimi".
Imported direct from Ochanoko-Saisai, Nishiki Market in Kyoto, this Ra-Yu (spicy oil) based furikake, made with Kyoto-grown Kujo green onions, is one of my favourite ingredients. Umami, sweet, spicy and crunchy, the furikake is crammed with roasted sesame and green onions.
Delicious as a rice seasoning - I also love it on eggs!
Made in Japan
