Rishiri Konbu invokes the word delicate which is all that is Kyoto cuisine. Sustainably harvested off the coast of Rishiri Island in far northern Japan, this konbu is flavorful, yet mild. It works perfectly to showcase each ingredient in a dish. This konbu gives an umami pop in a subtle, elegant way. We love this konbu when making beautiful dishes like chawan mushi, clear dashi soups, nimono, etc.
