Overview

Takenoko (Bamboo Shoots)

It is said that edible bamboo shoots came to Kaga through foot soldiers who brought back the tortoise-shell bamboo from Edo and planted it at their family temple. During the season, fresh takenoko harvested the same morning are piled up in mountains at direct sales stores in Uchikawa district’s Bessho town, where the shoots are produced. Takenoko so fresh they drip with water can only be tasted at the production site.
