Chosen by Tsujita-san himself, this tin is designed to store Yamatsu Tsujita's Yuzu Shichimi Togarashi and for using at the table. To fill, just remove the top, empty the spice pouch into the tin, and replace the top. When you're ready to add some spice to your dish, rotate the top until the holes align and then sprinkle the spice on your food. Rotate again to close.
It is the perfect accompaniment on the table for dishes where you want a citrus-y brightness, such as a corn miso soup or on top of grilled fish or chicken.
Tsujita-san recommends keeping his spices in the freezer when not using to preserve freshness.
Yuzu Shichimi Togarashi sold separately.

Yamatsu Tsujita Co. Ltd. is located just outside Osaka, Japan. Fourth generation owner Tsujita-san is passionate about his spices and has gone so far as to single-handedly save the cultivation of Japanese Takanotsume (Hawk's Claw) chili. This chili is highlighted in his shichimi togarashi.
