Akita is renowned for their high quality rice. Kiritanpo is a traditional food of Akita, using cooked rice, that is mashed and wrapped around skewers, and grilled over charcoal fire. It can be eaten with miso or added into a kiritanpo hot pot, with ingredients such as chicken, burdock, green onion, mushrooms and Japanese parsley.
The origin of kiritanpo can be traced back to the olden days when woodcutters used leftover rice to wrap around a wood stick and ate it with miso while working in the woods. Kiritanpo is normally eaten during mid-September to March.
