kombu‘Washoku’ means traditional Japanese food. Kelp and bonito flakes are essential ingredients for making dashi broth: one of the most traditional of all.


Kitase Kombu Traditional Store sells both kelp and bonito flakes. Their stick candy ‘yuzu kombu’ is popular amongst tourists, blending the flavours of kelp with yuzu (Japanese citrus). It’s eaten just like candy, so why don’t you give it a try? It’ll be a whole new taste sensation for you.
