Hinona Pickles in San Jose!

Mitsuwa Marketplace in San Jose has hinona pickles. I am very excited, as these are hard to get outside of Japan.

They are quite tasty. Maybe not as delicious as fresh in Kyoto, but they have a great spicy flavor much like a radish, along with a nice crispy mouthfeel. The greens are customarily chopped up and served alongside. They are much like pickled mustard greens, another kind of Japanese pickle that I like quite a bit.
