Akita tonburi, also known as "land caviar," is a type of seed that is native to the Akita prefecture of Japan. The tonburi plant is a member of the knotweed family, and its seeds are harvested in the late summer and early autumn.
The seeds are small and dark, with a distinctive texture and taste. They have a slightly crunchy texture, and a flavour that is often described as nutty or earthy, with a slight bitterness. Tonburi seeds are typically used in Japanese cuisine as a garnish or seasoning, and are often paired with seafood or used in sushi.
