Katsuobushi (Shredded dried bonito) is an indispensable ingredient for Japanese cuisine, so you cannot talk about Japanese cooking without mentioning this. There are two types of Katsuobushi, Arabushi and Karebushi. After the bonito is boiled, Arabushi has the surface blackened by smoking. Karebushi is matured Arabushi that is allowed to develop a mold. Both are then shredded finely. Hana-katsuo is finely shredded Arabushi that is excellent for clear dashi soup.…

Itakura Hiroshi offers “fine traditional food” that has been loved by local people, not a mass-produced product. Therefore, many of our products are available only in our stores and many customers travel from several hours away to get these unique products.
The sea bream niboshi is very rare, even in Japan. In fact, we have enthusiastic support from foreign customers, and some fans who buy it every time they come cruising to Japan.
We highly recommend making luxury miso soup with sea bream niboshi. Sea bream niboshi produces a very flavorful dashi, so your miso soup can be transformed into an exquisite miso soup as served in a luxury Japanese restaurant.
Itakura Hiroshi’s philosophy is “We deliver truly delicious food to our customers that can be eaten with peace of mind.” For this, we are particular about our ingredients and manufacturing methods with carefully selected products, rather than mass-produced souvenirs.
Nowadays, you may commonly purchase cured fish, dried seafood and general processed products at mass retailers. However, please try our “fine traditional foods”. “Superb taste!” You will be surprised. The key to its deliciousness lies in the raw materials and processing methods.
In order to produce large quantities of foods in a large factory, it is necessary that the raw materials be obtained easily , making it difficult to carefully select the raw materials. In addition, a lot of additives are used instead of using high quality raw materials.
When you visit Itakura Hiroshi stores, please have a look at the ingredients of our products. You will be amazed at the lack of additives in them. These products use delicious ingredients carefully selected by a fish connoisseur. This does not add any extra work, and the processing brings out the taste of the raw materials themselves.
Our products are amazingly delicious as snacks. Especially, dashi from niboshi, kombu, and katsuobushi will improve your dishes enormously. Please experience the taste of umami penetrating your entire body.
