Kabocha, the Japanese pumpkin.
The Japanese pumpkins
In “nitsuke” (flavored simmering, with bonito fish flakes, soy sauce and mirin).
This means “wheat natto”. As you know -or not- natto is cooked soy beans, that are then fermented with a bacteria called “nattokin”.

They precise 75% soy beans and 25 % wheat. That looks like that :
As you see, it’s even more natto-chewing-gumish than the standard…
With the sauce and mustard, that looks more familiar. Taste… er, honestly, just like traditionnal natto. If I had eaten it the eyes closed, I wouldn’t have known it was different.
White goya, salted. With a dash of Okinawan sauce (made of awamori sweet sake, infused with mini hot chili peppers).
