Kaki no tane or Kaki-pi are a common snack in Japan. The two elements of kaki-pi are kaki-no-tane (柿の種), small crescent-shaped fragments of senbei (soy-flavored rice crisps), and peanuts. They are often consumed with beer and are sometimes a bar snack. Kaki-pi has several different types of flavors, such as wasabi, pepper, amongst others. The name comes from the fact that the pieces of senbei look like a seed (, tane) of the persimmon (, kaki). The "pi" (pronounced as "pea") is an abbreviation of piinattsu (ピーナッツ), or "peanuts".
