Takahara sansho (Japanese pepper)

Its main cultivation area is Takayama City. The history of Japanese pepper cultivation in this area goes back to the Edo period (1603-1868) when the governor of Hida Province presented it to the Shogun of the day, according to one historical record. This variety yields smaller berries of deeper green color than ordinary Japanese pepper species. It is perceived as high quality for its distinctive flavor and storability over a long period.
