If only we could get Sola's Shio ice cream back for you from Japan too!
We discovered Sola Shio (sun salt) fine Japanese sea salt when staying at Benesse House art museum and hotel on Naoshima. We picked up a bag to sample and found ourselves sprinkling it on a great buttered bread or on eggs. It's a gorgeous finishing salt, and it doesn't hurt that it takes us back to some of our most memorable travel days on the Inland Japan Sea.
Sola Shio is a solar-powered salt farm on the island of Naoshima. Naoshima is historically a salt producing island that today is also an art island today.
