What is Inaka-zushi?

​Inaka-zushi is a local dish from the mountainous areas of Kochi Prefecture. It is made from vinegared rice with Kochi's speciality yuzu and ginger, and originally, ingredients from local vegs such as shiitake mushrooms, myoga, bamboo shoots, and konnyaku potatoes. The Vacation Rental MEI also offers original ingredient such as pickled paprika in soy sauce, fried eggplants with sweet soysouce and seasonally vegetables. They make for a colourful and pretty sushi.


​Inaka-zushi experience with all food culture 

​Originally, Inaka-zushi is made with plenty of vegetables, but at the MEI, from the preparation of ingredients, no animal products such as bonito soup stock use, to make the program an experience for people from all food cultures.
