Konb Kelp

Tsuruga city in the south of Fukui prefecture was a major port of call for Edo period cargo transport ships called Kitamaebune, plying between Tsuruga and Hokkaido. Tsuruga prospered as a kelp processing town, making the cultually important stock, "dashi", necessary for Japanese cooking. Oboro Kombu (extremely thin shaved kelp), handmade by artisans, is specialty product.
