Trails to Oishii Tokyo

Our focus today is Nozawana, a leaf vegetable indigenous to Japan. This one-meter-long vegetable is often pickled, as it spoils quickly. Nozawana was first grown in Japan in a village 600 meters above sea level. It has long provided snowed-in villages with a precious source of nutrition during harsh winters. Find out more about the vegetable that went from supporting mountain villages to being loved all around Japan.

Our focus today is Hijiki, a variety of seaweed that has been consumed in Japan for over 1,000 years. Much like tea leaves, this nutritious, low-calorie food is often dried, and soaked in water before use. Hijiki grow quickly at the start of spring on rocky coastlines, and are only available for harvest for a few days. Dive in to find out more about what ancient Japanese considered to be a gift from the sea.
