Kakishibu is a dye which is called persimmon tannin. Known for it’s repulsive odor but brilliant color it is made from non-sweet persimmon juice. The dye is applied and then placed in direct sunlight which will darken the color. It takes over 7 dips and tans to get a nice dark brown so it’s a time-consuming process.
