Between the rainy season from late May until mid-July, the humidity it leaves behind, and the typhoon season that peaks between August and September, Japan's summer is among the wettest you can get and this is reflected in everything, including the food produced in the islands. And it isn't just the vegetables and the fruit and Japanese staple of rice: even things that you usually don't think of as food, like salt, are affected by the rain and this is what makes the Za You Zen Four Seasons Salt Summer Wind so special!
Essentially handmade from salt from the Yuya Bay in Yamaguchi Prefecture, the Za You Zen Four Seasons Salt Summer Wind has been collected during the summer, when rain has saturated the sea's waters. The result is 140 g (4.9 oz) of salt with a strong flavor and packed with umami that makes each dish taste like it has been touched by a summer breeze blowing from the Sea of Japan!
