Washimi kabura (turnip)

The turnip is cultivated in the Washimi area of Takasu Town in Gujo City. Unlike Hida beni kabu (red turnip), its color is close to purple which becomes lighter towards the bottom, while the lower two-thirds are white. The texture is soft and suitable for being pickled. Pickles are made for various consumption seasons such as the new year holiday, winter, spring and summer by adjusting the amount of salt used.

"Washimi kabura zuke" pickles with a gently salty taste.
We offer two types of pickles; "Kirizuke" of thinly sliced Washimi kabura turnip and "Nagazuke(long-term pickled)" of a whole turnip pickled from autumn to next summer. The latter is our current recommendation. An addition of red pepper results in moderate saltiness.
Service periodSliced pickles from early May to late June, long-term pickles from early October to late July

More and more customers are visiting us again to buy more - 5 or 6 bags at once.
Once they are harvested in autumn and pickled properly, they can be stored in the fridge and enjoyed for one whole year to come. They are seasoned only with salt and red pepper. Its appetizing sourness and spiciness makes it difficult to stop moving your chopsticks. Their popularity also comes from its lingering spiciness in the palate.
Service periodAll year round
