The combination of three bushi (Dried Bonito, Dried Mackerel, and Dried Soda Bonito) creates a thick flavor and the unique umami and aroma of fish broth. The source of the deep richness and thick aroma comes from Soda bonito which has more blood, the reddish-black part of the meat, along the middle bone of the fish. A strong oily astringent taste is created by Mackerel. The sweetness of dried bonito balances the flavor of three. Tokyo Dashi is a perfect match for soba, udon, and various warm soups. It even gets along with the strong miso.

The best ratio for flavorful dashi
1 dashi bag for 300ml of water
2 dashi bags for 500ml of water
Our dashi is made using all-natural ingredients. To adjust the flavor, simply add salt. After extracting the dashi, open the bag and roast the ingredients in a pan with soy sauce, sugar, mirin, and sake to make a furikake seasoning to sprinkle over rice or mix into rice balls.
