The most famous natto from Japan, comes from Mito (水戸), Ibaraki so since we are in Ibaraki of course we would get to see lots of different types of Natto varieties. So let us check it out!
Natto Senbei (Natto rice crackers)
Chocolate coated Natto.
Natto curry (maybe the cute packaging is needed to entice you to buy it? *grin*)
Natto Jelly (traditional Japanese jelly)
Since we are in Town of course, we have to buy the traditional Mito Natto fermented in straw. Not much difference with the usual natto packed in Styrofoam boxes but the smell of the grass is pretty aromatic.
Next would be eating Natto here.
Headed to this local eatery famous for their Natto food and we opted for this full Natto course.
Ta-da! Full Natto course. Let us check out what is in the set?
Natto with Tuna bits.
Natto tempura (wrapped with vegetable)
Natto Miso soup.
Side dish of Natto with silver fish and seaweed in ponzu. *Laugh* Can you eat this much of Natto for a day?

Ok, another interesting find in Ibaraki, don’t worry it is not Natto. Othello chocolate, I guess you play with the chocolate and eat those pieces up?
