Hi, I'm Tomo, a Japanese blogger living in Niigata Prefecture, Japan. For the purpose of enriching your life, I would like to introduce things about Japan on this blog, especially unique Japanese products, cooking recipes, cultures, and facts and trivia.

    Hey Tomo, cool blog. I’m interested in neri-uni and any other methods used to preserve sea urchins: do you think you could help me find a recipe for neri-uni, or any other recipe for preserving sea urchin roe? I’d be happy to send you some once I’m able to make it.

    Thank you for the info. Could you tell me where I can buy the bottles of Neri uni to have shipped to my home in Florida?

    Tomo, thank you so much for responding. I tried both of those 2 websites but I had no luck. Since my mom passed away (she’s Japanese) I haven’t been able to get any. My siblings have been looking as well. Thanks again for at least responding and trying for us.

      Hi David,
      Thank you for letting me know about the result but that’s a shame…
      Although you can get Japanese sea urchin sauce such as Unihishio and Uni Shoyu on,
      it appears no seller carries Neri Uni for now.
