Sansai is the Japanese generic term for "mountain vegetables", originally referring to vegetables that grew naturally in the wild and were not cultivated. However in modern times, the distinction is blurred, as some sansai such as warabi have been successfully cultivated. Warabi is a type of edible fern that grows wild in Japan. All kinds of mountain vegetables including warabi is popular in Japanese vegetarian buddhist temple cuisine.
