About the Producer

Along the coastline West of Tokyo, between the towns of Kozu and Ninomiya, with the mountains at our back and the sea at our doorstep, our family has been making delicious food for your table for over a century. What my great grandfather started then, I continue today, growing sakura and ume trees, and using the techniques inherited over the generations to make salt-pickled sakura, umeboshi, and yukari (ume-pickled purple shiso leaves).
