Cut off the roots of the asparagus 1 in. from the end and slice the asparagus stalks diagonally into 2 in. pieces.
Add the water to a pan. Bring to a boil and add the asparagus. After boiling for about 5 minutes, drain the asparagus.
Parch the sesame seeds over medium-high heat until they crackle and pop.
Put them in an earthenware mortar (suribachi) or food processor and grind.
Mix the ground sesame seeds, soy sauce and sugar in a bowl.
Add the asparagus to the sesame seeds mixture and mix.
The taste of white sesame dressing suits the asparagus well and is very rich.
