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.

Looks delicious. I do love ginger!
Thanks. Ginger is very good for health.
Looks delicious! Unfortunately I cannot buy it in Poland. I must try it in Japan while I’m on holidays.
You can buy it in Japan easily. It has an interesting taste.
I was never fond of ginger until I came to Japan. Now I’m a big fan! 🙂
That’s relays good. The ginger drink is also good.
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 🙂
Indeed. We were surprised that the plant grew suddenly. We appreciate the wind and animals. 😀
I love Japanese ginger and we use it quite a lot in our Japanese cooking. Great find 🙂
That’s really nice. Japanese ginger is useful for Japanese cooking. Thanks.
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. 😀
I see. We usually buy the ginger at supermarket. So we were lucky to have them. Lots of ginger make food delicious.
Does it taste like the ginger that we are used to? They kind used in Indian cooking?
It tastes like the ginger but it’s different. We use it only for Japanese cooking 🙂
I wonder why it isn’t used more widely?
I think so. The taste is unique. If I export it, someone may buy it. 🙂
Happy New Year!
long time 🙂 new post pls?
