Beni shōga (紅生姜?) is a type of tsukemono (Japanese pickle). It is made from ginger cut into thin strips, colored red, and pickled in umezu (梅酢), the pickling solution used to make umeboshi; the red color is derived from red perilla. It is served with many Japanese dishes, including gyūdon, okonomiyaki, and yakisoba.
