NATLANGS: What's that writing system?

So, I've been watching these video clips of this show, "The Ito Family's
Dinner Table", and I've been rather puzzled by this one clip in particular.

This woman holds up a tray of salt and (evidently; I don't know
Japanese) says that it's called /tSao/ or possibly /tSaw/ in [some
language that is not Japanese] before she goes on to identify it as
salt. There's some mysterious foreign language subtitle there which I
absolutely cannot identify; does anyone recognise it? It's clearly not
hanzi and doesn't appear to be Ge'ez or anything else on Omniglot...
