Dassai has been popular in overseas countries and it’s from Iwakuni city, Yamaguchi Prefecture in West Japan. The city is facing the setouchi (the seto inland sea) region and famous for seafood, citrus fruits etc… Lots of rich bounty.
Tried the refreshing sake with the local fish cakes in the same area. Sake is from Yamaguchi Pref, Fish cakes are from Hiroshima. (west end of the mainland Japan) Ingredients are all different such as grilled conger eel, octopus, little sardines and sea bream. Just cut as small bite size pieces and eat with a little wasabi & shoyu. Or cooked with hot dashi soup just like Japanese hot pot meal called Oden. Anyway, it’s nice to enjoy the paring with the same region’s terroir when we go on a trip!
