Story & Recommendation
Providing Aromatic Spices for Centuries in Kiyomizu-dera Temple Area
Shichimi is a type of spice blend familiar among people of Japan often used to enhance flavors in Japanese cuisine. With 360 years of history, Shichimiya Honpo has been offering aromatic spices to local people for centuries in the Kiyomizu-dera Temple area. Back in the day, hot water with chili powder was kindly handed to those making a visit to Kiyomizu-dera Temple giving much needed warmth during cold weather. Distinctively blended Shichimi spices are the key product of this shop with its settle spiciness and aromatic flavors. Check out other products as well such as Ichimi (Japanese chili powder) and Sansho (Japanese green pepper powder).
