“Wind of Ruri”, the top-grade Japanese green laver (Enteromorpha prolifera) that has the strongest fragrance and the best taste, grows only in a specific fishery of Yoshino River in Tokushima. The design of its package is a polyhedron with the motif of the beautiful water surface of Yoshino River.
The silver-leafed material that is seen through the holes in the center, specially processed with a wavy pattern, also represents the water’s surface. The Japanese classical logo and the edgy package form embody a mixture of tradition and modernity.
Green laver, known as aonori in Japan and parae in Korean, is a type of edible green seaweed, including species from the genera Monostroma and Enteromorpha.
