A variety of konbu, the essential relish for Japanese dining
Chinami specializes only in konbu sea kelp products. From the konbu brought from Rishiri (Hokkaido) for making the finest broths that are essential to Japanese cuisine, to original cooked konbu items, there are always over 100 different kinds of konbu tastes in their shop. The most popular item is the Konbu-dama. A kind of konbu called Shiofuki, is cooked until it becomes completely soft and then flavored with sansho Japanese pepper. It is the best accompaniment for Japanese plain rice and tea. Another unique item is Kushun, dried konbu cut into thin strips and eaten as a snack. The stylish packaging also attracts customers. Kushun lasts for many days so tourists like to choose it as a souvenir to take home.
