Delivery for Canada, Australia and Russia


Please be advised that it may take around 14 – 30 days delivering for Canada, Australia and Russia by International e-packet (registered small packet by air). Their custom inspection is quite strict and takes time longer than any other countries in the world. Also it is not updated tracking data usually. Therefore please ask your local post office if you would not receive your order after a month past from our dispatch date.

[IMPORTANT] Revision of EMS fare


Japan Post will make a significant revision in their postal charges including EMS from June 1, 2016. We will therefore have to increase update our shipping charges accordingly. If you are our regular customer buying the total weight over 2 kg, we suggest to place your orders soon! We will try our best to ship out before this increase with our current fares! International e-packet (registered small packet by air mail) continues existing charge.

Kuzukiri, Japanese traditional sweets for the Summer


This is an instant Kuzukiri of Sasaya Iori in Kyoto. Just like Tokoroten, but Kuzukiri is made of Kuzu (herb) and eaten with brown sugar syrup. Tokoroten is made of Kanten (sea weed) and eaten with vinegar, soy sauce and mustard (sometimes with Aonori, sea weed) . Both are hallmarks of Japanese cold jelly sweets in the Summer.
