If You Visit Kagoshima In Japan, You’ll Find That They Are Obsessed With This One Thing
If you plan to travel to Japan, make sure you include Kagoshima on your itinerary as you’ll see the wild side of Japan.
The prefecture is home to the great volcanoes of Mount Kirishima and Mount Sakurajima, as well as the Yakushima ancient forests and the breath-taking view of Amami-Oshima Island.
Another unique thing you’ll notice is the rows of ceramic pots overlooking the stunning hills and nature, which have become an iconic scene of the picturesque Kagoshima.
So, what’s inside the ceramic pots?
The ceramic pots contain what the locals regard as “black gold”, and the black gold we’re talking about here is not oil, but black vinegar or kurozu. It’s a type of amber rice vinegar that has been produced for centuries!
While most commercial vinegars are produced in factory, the fermentation of kurozu takes place in outdoor ceramic jars. Made using a 200-year-old traditional recipe, the vinegar is left to ferment in the sun and is monitored through sound, smell, colour, and taste for up to 3 years!
Artisans first add the raw materials—kōji-kin (the fungus that grows on rice), followed by steamed rice, and then water into the jars. After carefully sprinkling kōji mold on the surface of the mixture, the containers are capped and sealed.
Why are the locals in Kagoshima so obsessed with kurozu?
The locals enjoy adding kurozu to their dishes because it’s rich in amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and organic acids, making it a health booster ingredient. That’s not all though. Kurozu’s acidic tang with a hint of sweetness can also make food taste better. Win-win!
Curious about kurozu? Well, you don’t have to fly all the way to Japan to reap its benefits!
