Sakura Denbu (桜でんぶ) is seasoned codfish condiment that is cooked, shredded and dried to make flakes and are sweetened. These flakes are used as toppings for rice in bento boxes and Chirashi Sushi. Food coloring is added to the Denbu so that it gives a pink hue to rice that resembles the pedals of Sakura Cherry Blossoms.
