Shiobara Kogen Daikon (‘daikon’ meaning ‘radish’), can well be considered the hallmark among Shiobara's local produce.
Situated high above sea level, Shiobara is cool, with distinct temperature differences between night and day. Because of this, the cold Autumn causes the radishes to store up sugar in order to survive the harsh Winter, resulting in their deliciously sweet flavour.
With its 60 year history of soil improvement work, Shiobara has become a one-of-a-kind area for radish production in Japan, with its radishes highly valued in markets all over the country.
Grown with love by local farmers in a fresh and natural environment, Shiobara Kogen Daikon is a must-try for any vegetable lover.
