Aomori’s traditional cuisine ‘Kenoshiru’  青森の伝統料理「けの汁」



In Aomori, people wish for perfect health by eating a traditional cuisine called ‘Kenoshiru’, which is full of nutrition on the 15th of January of lunar calendar(19th of February).

The origin of ‘Kenoshiru’ came from ‘Soup of porridge’, as rice was very expensive in the olden days, mountain vegetables and vegetables were shredded into the size of rice and made as soup.



‘Kenoshiru’ is made up of shredded root crops (radish, carrot, burdock and etc.), mountain vegetables (Japanese butterburs, brackens, flowering ferns and etc.), fried bean curd, frozen bean curd and cook together.

Although the ingredients put into the ‘Kenoshiru’ are slightly different between the regions in Aomori Prefecture, the most common one is miso soup.


Nowadays, it is more convenient to consume ‘Kenoshiru’ as it is available in can or in packet.
