The norinorishiri-zu is produced by nori (seaweed) farmers by focusing on “ichiban-tsumi (first pick of nori),” which is rich in umami. Nori can be harvested after approximately a month from planting, and the first crop known as “ichiban-tsumi” is renowned for its soft texture as well as its abundant umami and nutrients. Freshly-harvested nori is then processed carefully to achieve an exceptional taste, which is remarkably different from other nori. The ever-popular “yakinori (baked nori)” is roasted until it is crisp and savory, and melts in the mouth. “Shionori (salted nori)” is made with yakishio (roasted salt) from Ishigaki Island and first-press oil taken from rapeseed. “Ajinori (seasoned nori)” has been lightly seasoned to maintain the original aroma of the seaweed and is slightly sweet. The unique “takinori (simmered nori)” is processed to a paste by mixing with other ingredients such as katsuo (tuna), sesame and red pepper. In addition to serving with rice or as a snack to accompany drinks, our products also go perfectly with Western dishes such as pasta and pizza. Also, the lovely package featuring nori, which is simply designed in black and white, makes it an ideal gift. This is a set of processed nori that lets you feel the natural blessings of the Ariake Sea with ease.

July 23rd 海の日, Umi no Hi , "Ocean Day"


Umi no Hi is a national holiday to celebrate the ocean. On this day, families visit the sea and swim, snorkel, surf, or dive. People may also participate in an event called ‘mud-ball throwing’. Mud-balls are composed of ‘Effective Micro-organisms" (EMs), which help break-down and eliminate sea grime. National aquariums also host special water-related events on this day.


In Tokyo thousands of people go to Odaiba beach and make beautiful patterns with lanterns.
