Yagenbori is one of the three oldest stores that specializes in Shichimi-togarashi. Shichimi-togarashi, which translates to seven flavor chilli pepper, is a common Japanese seasoning used on Udon, Soba, Yakitori, and many soup dishes. Shichimi can be mild to very hot, depending on how you blend the seven spices such as Japanese pepper, ginger, black sesame, hemp seed, citrus peel and much more. At Yagenbori you can blend your own Shichimi, making it a very special gift for a special someone.
