Marumiya’s Long-Selling Sukiyaki Furikake Rice Seasoning

A wide variety of condiments for rice are available at supermarkets in Japan as steamed plain rice is the staple food of the Japanese.

I am fond of new things, so I tend to like buying newly released products. But the other day, when I went shopping, a classic rice seasoning drew my attention, because I used to use it sprinkling over rice as a kid.

Feeling nostalgic for the old days, I grabbed the product.

What I purchased this time is this Marumiya’s Sukiyaki Furikake. This rice seasoning was released in 1963 by “Marumiya (丸美屋)” and now it has become one of the standard rice condiments in Japan.

Marumiya Sukiyaki Furikake Flakes

As you may already know, “Furikake (ふりかけ)” is the Japanese rice seasoning that consists of dry mini flakes made from various food materials.

This Furikake has a “Sukiyaki (すきやき: Japanese beef hot pot)” flavor, so these flakes actually include beef and as a whole have a sweet soy sauce flavor which kind of reminds eaters of Sukiyaki beef pot. Yes, it tastes great as ever!

As I wrote above, Furikake is usually sprinkled over steamed plain rice. As a matter of fact, this is the most common usage of Furikake, but sometimes the dry flakes are used to add some flavor to noodles, vegetables or bread.
