About the manufacturer
In 1871, the Japanese manufacturer started trading in kombu seaweed, which he sourced from the best harvesting areas in Hokkaido. From the beginning he focused on the best qualities. Around 1900 he became a supplier of kombu for traditional, discerning Ryotei-Restaurants in Kyoto.
To date, he owns a special cellar for maturation of kombu seaweed. The ripening technique has been known for centuries, as it used to be common to store kombu over the winter due to difficult transport conditions in winter. However, only very special kombu algae are suitable for this maturation like Rishiri Kombu. The producer ages rishiri kombu up to 20 years.

Note: Kombu algae have a very high iodine content and can lead to health problems if consumed in excessive amounts.
