HIjiki on a Hill
On a drive south of Toba, we stopped to take in the view from a promontory. There, we found a group of people carefully using part of a parking lot to dry hijiki seaweed.
They offered to give us some, but since we were traveling, it really didn't make any sense to accept any to cook. I guess once upon a time, seaweed would have been dried up on a hillside--a parking lot makes perfect sense in the modern world.
