    Thank you Tomo, this is exactly the information I was looking for about Hikiwari Netto. I was gifted many kinds of frozen Natto by a friend, who I told I liked to eat Natto when I visited Japan. I used it with two kinds of cooked rice and put it on a salad because it is summer.

      Hi Jen,
      Thank you for commenting and you’re welcome.
      Many people say they can’t eat natto because of its slimy consistency and unpleasant smell, but it actually has an acquired taste and can be used in various ways as you did.
