Umeshu (plum liquor)

Picked plums in my backyard, and made plum liquor.
I need to be patient for a while until it's ready to drink in about 3 months.
Well, I don't think I can wait so long!!

First day at the office after remote work
Hi, everyone. Let us introduce our office today!
Oops, sorry...! It's so messy...

We were tele-working until last week, and today is the first day working at the offie for every staff member after we started remote work on April 6th.

The first thing we did this morning was to set up vinyl curtains to protect each other from infections.

It's just a precaution, but we need to do whatever we can do to make ourselves comfortable at work.

Well, we hope things will get back to normal soon!

Rainy season begins.

Rainy season is called "梅雨" (tsuyu) in Japanese, which literally means "Plum Rain".
The reason why we call it “Plum Rain” is because plums are just ripening in this time of the year.
Now is the best plum picking season, and homemade umeshu (plum liquor), or umeboshi (pickled plum) have always been very popular in Japan since long ago. 🙂

Have you ever tasted Japanese umeshu or umeboshi?😊
Well, I love them both!😋💕


Sakura in Akita

Samurai District in Kakunodate, Akita.
The sakura trees are usually in full glory between late April and early March, but the best season seems to come a bit ealrier than usual this year.

It's such a breathtaking view, isn't it?




Natto and the Immune System

As the current research shows, fermented foods can boost your immune system.

Have you ever tried Japanese 'natto'?


'Natto' is one of the great fermented foods from Japan!

It consists of fermented soybeans and is characterized by a slimy, sticky and stringy texture.
...Yikes, it doesn't sound good... But actually it's worth trying!

Natto is very rich in probiotics, vitamin C and several minerals, all of which contribute to a healthy immune system!

Let's eat natto, get better health, and fight the coronavirus!

We have freeze-dried natto. If you are interested, please contact us!

Bye-bye, novel coronavirus! Health Benefits of Matcha Green Tea

We hope you are safe from the widespread novel coronavirus.

Did you know that Japanese green tea has a lot of catechin, which is believed to boost our immune system?

Especially matcha green tea contains twice as much catechin as green tea.

Matcha also provides a relaxing effect because of teanin contained in it.

Why not start trying matcha which might relax yourself, and make you even healthier until this virus confusion comes to an end?

You can get our organic matcha green tea powder HERE. :)
