What Is A Yukari Pen?

      Have you ever tried Yukari?  Yukari is Japanese rice seasoning and is manufactured by Mishima Syokuhin, which was established in 1949 in Japan. Yukari was first made in 1970s and has been very popular rice seasoning in Japan. Indeed, when I lived in Japan, my family always kept Yukari at our kitchen. It's like that you always have butter in your fridge. When I was in dormitory, I was taught how to make Yukari pasta by senior students. It was very easy to cook and was often served at small parties there. :)  By the way, Yukari is made of Japanese red shiso leaves which is also used for coloring umeboshi, Japanese pickled plum, which is so delicious with steamed rice. :)

     Now, Yukari Pen is very popular in Japan and often sold out. When I heard about Yukari Pen, I didn't know what it is. Yukari Pen is not an actual pen. It's still rice seasoning! It's just Yukari in a pen style case. It's easy to be carried around, so you can always keep it in your bag and season rice with it at restaurants, your office or school. I thought it's a very clever idea! It's not available in the U.S. yet, but I want one someday!
