Yamatsu Tsujita was founded in 1902 in Osaka Prefecture. Mr. Tsujita, the master blender of Yamatsu Tsujita often visits the fields where each ingredient is grown and helps harvest the crops. He always appreciates the farmers who cultivate the ingredients he uses by making the most of their produce. Yamatsu Tsujita’s Shichimi Togarashi is not only a condiment which adds flavor to your dish, but also a sign of respect for the Japanese agriculture and farmers. Mr. Tsujita pays precise attention to the flavor and scent of each of seven ingredients. Yamatsu Tsujita never stocks Shichimi Togarashi and begins to mix ingredients only after they get and order from the customers.

Yamatsu Tsujita’s Yuzu Shichimi Togarashi is made of the special ingredients which are chosen carefully by Mr. Tsujita. He uses only the special type of yuzu citrus called, Misho Yuzu, which is grown from seeds (so never grafted) and takes average 15 years for the tree to start bearing fruits. Each yuzu is hand-peeled and dried, and the peels are slowly stone-ground by taking half day. Then, it’s carefully blended with Red pepper, Asakura Sansho, Ao-nori Seaweed and Golden Sesame seeds etc. This Shichimi Togarashi has the beautiful sweet and elegant aroma of yuzu, perfectly harmonized with the fresh spicy character of the Japanese red pepper and other fragrant ingredients. It makes a perfect condiment for soup, grilled food, or any dish you want to spice up.
