Wakame seaweed is high in vitamins and minerals, containing calcium, iron, iodine and magnesium. With traces of Vitamin A, C, E, K and B complex. (not sure you’ll fit that on your menu) but it is definitely worth shouting about. 

We found this premium range wakame seaweed in Tokushima, an island where two seas meet. The forces of water from the two seas push the wild wakame in all directions, making the seaweed super strong. 

Harvested by professional women divers who specialise in fishing this incredible wakame. Traditionally served with Udon, Tempura, Ramen or Salad.

Tokushima region map

Prefecture: Tokushima

Many descend on Tokushima City every August for the large-scale Awa Odori dance festival, but the prefecture offers outdoor fun in every season.

Tokushima is most famous for the Awa Odori Festival, which brings hordes of tourists during the Obon holiday period in August. But the prefecture, located on the eastern corner of Shikoku, offers beautiful nature and outdoor thrills all year round. Try out white-water rafting in spring or surfing in summer. Enjoy locally brewed sake in the town of Awa Ikeda during cooler months, or trek part of the Shikoku Pilgrimage Route. Off the coast lie the Naruto whirlpools, best viewed from sightseeing cruises.

As buckwheat is the local crop rather than rice, soba is always sure bet. Sobagome zosui is a thick porridge/gratin-style dish made by boiling the soba seeds and won’t be found anywhere else in Japan.
