WE ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT JAPANESE FOOD & WERE TIRED OF NOT BEING ABLE TO FIND ARTISANAL INGREDIENTS HERE IN THE USA.

We have traveled all over Japan, meeting with artisanal producers of traditional ingredients. What we've found is amazing: perfectly roasted sesame seeds, konbu hand-harvested from the cold, clean waters off of Hokkaido, tamari produced by a company over 200 years old, & rice vinegar made by a company so exacting that they grow their own rice, make it into sake and then turn it into vinegar.

Japanese ingredients & cooking techniques are making their way into restaurant & home kitchens across North America. With our ingredients you can elevate your cuisine.
