In Yamagata, which is a place of rice, bales with special high-quality rice are wrapped with “kuronawa” so that they stand out from a distance. From Sakata, a stopover port of the Kitamae ship, the kuronawa was transported from Kamigata to Edo.
Only available in Yamagata. This is a gorgeous representation. Soft and fleeting. Bright with tingling acidity and lovely fresh pineapple and melon flavours this proved to be a crowd favourite.
