Finally! For those looking to enjoy the more fruity, delicate flavor of real wasabi with their sushi, we offer this.
The vast majority of wasabi found outside of Japan is not made from true wasabi root, but from western horseradish. Hon wasabi (real wasabi) is finicky and difficult to grow and thus rather expensive. Kameya’s packaged hon wasabi is grown at the base of Mt. Amagi in Shizuoka Prefecture.
