Mie Prefecture has long been a hijiki seaweed production area, and the produce is shipped around the country under the name "Ise Hijiki". Ise Hijiki is characteristically long and thick, and renowned for its excellent taste. It is highly rated, fetching a higher price on the market than the produce of other areas. The region provides the perfect environment for hijiki seaweed to grow, with its craggy terrain and shallow waters, the strong current and nutrient- and salt-rich sea waters of Ise Bay flowing in from the clean Pacific Ocean.
