Natural salt making experience

Noda Village

Northern Iwate

Noda salt, which has a long history, was made using a method called ``direct boiling salt,'' in which seawater was boiled down directly. In 1945, just after the end of the war, more than 130 salt pots were said to have been built on the Tofugaura coast, and at a time when rice was 5 yen per sho, salt was 35 yen per sho. It is said that they were traded at even higher prices in Morioka and Akita. With the discontinuation of self-sufficient salt production in 1949, the tradition temporarily ceased, but has been revived as an experience event in recent years. This ``experience of making natural salt'' can be done at Eboshi-so.
