Myoga (Japanese Ginger)


My wife found this myoga growing wild in our garden. She gathered them the other day. 


These are myoga. We use them for spice  


Esepecially, Udon( cold Japanese noodle) and myoga is great combination.


We add it in the soup. The taste is little spicy.

I live in Kawagoe-city Saitama-prefecture Japan. There are many traditional warehouses in Kawagoe. So many Japanese and the people from overseas come to sightseeing.

  1. How lovely that you found it growing in your garden! What a gift. It’s surprising what turns up in the garden brought by the wind or animals and birds 🙂

  2. I have not tried Japanese wild ginger. Wonder how it tastes. I use lots of ginger in my cooking. I usually buy my ginger, no luck to find a wild one in the city. 😀
