Product Description

Making Salt
The Okunoto salt farms, or enden in Japanese, are unique to the Okunoto area. Hundreds of years ago, salt was gathered from the ocean by spreading seawater on fields of sand and then gathering the salt after the water evaporated. At a few locations in the Okunoto this tradition is still in practice, and at the Suzu Enden Mura a functioning salt farm is open to the public, as well as displays about salt. Nearby, a bit inland, are the Tokikuni Residences.
