Konauni is a dry powdery seasoning that’s made from sea urchin and salt.
To make Konauni, we dry Shiouni and grind it. And to make 100g of Konauni,we use 200 sea urchins.
Shiouni is said to be one of Japan’s three major delicacies. We make Shiouni to sprinkle salt and condense to sea urchin. It is good to eat with Japanese Sake. 200 years ago,our ancestor “Gohei Amano” discovered how to make Shiouni .The Shiouni was given to the feudal load of Fukui Japan.
Our company Tentatsu was founded in the Edo period in 1804, and we sold our product to the feudal lord of Fukui.
At this time, our family head name was”Tenouya Tatsukiti”.
The last feudal lord of Fukui “Syungaku Matsudaira” gave our family head the nick name ”Tentatsu”.
After that, our shop name became “Tentatsu”.
Please store in a refrigerator. (One or two days normal temperature is OK)
It is good to eat sprinkled “Konauni” on hot rice. The taste of sea urchin and the smell of the sea will stir the appetite. Served with pasta or salad is also delicious.
