Shichimi with gold leaf
Shichimi pepper is sold on the approach to Zenkoji Temple in Nagano Prefecture.
Shichimi pepper is a seasoning that has been used in Japan since the Edo period.
I think my Christmas present this year will be this shichimi pepper (with gold leaf!). I think I'll go for it!
Will the gold leaf be absorbed by the body?
I put it in pork miso soup!
I'm feeling celebratory!
