I would add some fresh or pickled daikon radish to the topping. To pickle fresh vegetables toss together with a tablespoon or two of salt and let stand for an hour or so. Then, squeeze out all their excess water and combine with 5 or 6 tablespoons of sugar dissolved in a cup of rice vinegar or 2/3 cup regular vinegar plus 1/3 cup water. let stand for an hour or more before using.
