Why Kita Murasaki Uni so special?
The Kita Murasaki Uni is a variety of long spiked sea urchin that inhabits the coasts of Hokkaido. Its meat is generally pale yellow but sometimes comes in bright orange.
Kita Murasaki Uni is much larger than any of its other Japanese counterparts. Its flavor is distinct from Bafun Uni and is a lot creamier and sweeter with a light texture that virtually melts in your mouth. The rich flavor of the Murasaki also comes out midway through, which adds to an unforgettable experience.
This brand is well-known for using the only best of the Murasaki Uni. Please be aware that it will be up for auction, and there is a chance that someone else will outbid your order. Additionally, Hadate Uni are rare and in limited supply, so we cannot always guarantee delivery.
