The highest quality recognition:

Japanese restaurants, sushi restaurants and kabayaki-eel restaurants.
We have strived to produce genuine soy sauce and to maintain authentic skills since we first started soy sauce brewing in 1645. The brilliant reds and delicious flavours are the result of all this tradition and history.
