Trying to find sakura salt (cherry blossom salt) somewhere in the US. Has anyone found it at any online retailers or chain stores?

    The Meadow has what they call Cherry Plum Salt. Is that the same?

      Sakura salt is cherry blossoms pickled in plum vinegar and salt then dried and ground into a salt.

      Try Rakuten (http://global.rakuten.com/en/search?t...). Although not in the US, many vendors ship to the US. If they don't you can order through Tenso.com.
