Kashima-Daiichi hatsu-maru-ni
A refined, soft sweetness Immersed in the lingering aftertaste of a rich flavor
Located at the eastern end of the Kashima fishing grounds, the first fishing area is where the mineral-rich waters of the Shiota River and the Ariake Sea mix. This year too, the seaweed has grown to have a rich umami flavor. True to its 'Maru' grade, the seaweed melts pleasantly in the mouth, its deliciousness and aroma intensifying, an appealing feature. The lingering scent is comfortably refreshing, almost like breathing in the Ariake Sea itself.
