Long established Kyoto pickles shop in Nishijin

Our store was founded in Nishijin when the sound of the weaving machines could be heard, one hundred years ago. Since then, we have been producing "tsukemono", Japanese pickled vegetables, indispensable for the daily life of Kyoto people.One of our concern is to choose fresh domestic vegetables from Kyoto that have a juicy taste and aroma, as well as a subtle salted tone for a chewy texture. We try to deliver a taste that has been certified by experts from the selection of vegetables to the end result everyday.
