Miyama Ishi Tofu
100% Toyama specialty soybeans and natural saltwater bittern are the ingredients for “Miyama Ishi Tofu” born in the spring-water of Mt. Hakusan. Without excessive moisture, this tofu is tough enough that it can maintain its form even when bound in string. A long shelf life means it can be used as a preserved food and it is also delicious eaten as sashimi or tofu steak.
Hida Shirakawa-go Specialty Rice Ramen Noodles
Made using 100% Shirakawa rice grown in the terraced paddies using the fresh waters from Mt. Hakusan, these rice ramen noodles feature a soft, chewy texture. Because this product is gluten-free, they also have health benefits and are ideal for those with allergies.
