Yamashio pickles are a specialty of Kitano Town, Kurume City. The Chinese character for "yama-shio" (mountain tide) is a green vegetable, and yama-shio pickles are made by pickling it overnight.
It is said that about 300 years ago, when the Chikugo River overflowed and caused a landslide upstream, the seeds of yama-shio were washed away and grew wild on the sandbank of the Chikugo River. In the Chikugo region, a landslide is called "Yamashio.

It can be sliced into strips or chopped, topped with dried bonito flakes, and served with soy sauce or ponzu (Japanese citrus juice) for a richer flavor. It can also be served with grated daikon, stir-fried, or in miso soup. It can be served with rice or sake, depending on your preference!
