The establishment of our Japanese pepper business dates back to 1975. Hida Sansho pepper has a uniquely strong fragrance that has been acquired through natural growth in the rich nature of Hida, and has been carefully protected by the local people for many generations.
It is the unique Hida environment of the high altitude of 800m within the 5km radius that makes this fragrance possible. The same seed would not produce the same fragrance in different areas. It is the accidental combination of soil, water, temperature and mist (moisture) that makes this possible.
From mid-July to mid-August, the entire production is done carefully by hand, from the harvesting of each individual seed, gathering, drying in the shade, sun drying, and the skin and seed separation. Then they are turned into powder, depending on the order, by stone mill or mallet.
