Mentaiko, or walleye pollack roe, is a popular ingredient in Japan, used in pasta, bread and sushi. MAEDA KAISAN is a long-standing mentaiko manufacturer in Yamaguchi Prefecture’s Shimonoseki City, the birthplace of mentaiko. Our products do not appear on the open market often, because 80 per cent of them are for business use, such as fish markets and restaurants. However,as a pioneer of spicy mentaiko and the first specialised mentaiko manufacturer in Japan, we produce the best-tasting and highest-quality spicy mentaiko. For many people, our mentaiko was the first they ever tried and still enjoy to this day.

For 20 years, the founder of UOKEN had been working at his family’s seafood processing business in Wakayama Prefecture. In 2008, he decided to start his own business and pursue his own way of processing seafood. He focused his manufacturing in the Kitaura region of Yamaguchi Prefecture, where he was fascinated by the abundance and freshness of fish. Today, UOKEN produces dried fish, fried fish and other types of processed seafood. The UOKEN style is to extract the urity of the ingredient’s taste without using additives as much as possible and to make products by hand more than anything else.

The sake brewery Okazaki Shuzojyo is famous for its Chomonkyo brand of sake, named after the beautiful gorge on the upper reaches of Abu-gawa River in northern Yamaguchi Prefecture. Okazaki Shuzojyo once brewed its sake close to this stunning location but moved to its present setting along the Abugawa River in 1970 because of dam construction. Chomonkyo sake is available as Yamada Nishiki and Saito-no-Shizuku, two sake rice varieties that are representative of Yamaguchi Prefecture.

During spring, Yachiyo Shuzo’s sake brewing begins with preparations for growing seedlings. In autumn, the sake rice Yamada Nishiki is harvested, and from November, sake is brewed in the extreme cold. For over 20 years, we have been cultivating sake rice using the mineral-rich water of Mt Daishoyama. We strive for agricultural consistency throughout the process, from rice making to sake brewing. We cherish the concept of “terroir”, made up of the weather, climate and environment, and its importance in creating our sake. We will continue innovating to preserve this long-held Japanese tradition.
