History of ICHIKYU


ICHIKYU MISO JOZO CO., LTD. is a company that produces miso, a traditional Japanese seasoning.

The company was founded in 1914 by the first representative, Kojiro Shikata, as ICHIKYU KANTOYA MISO HONPO.

In 1948, the company was reorganized as ICHIKYU MISO JOZO CO., LTD. and we have been working hard to manufacture and sell miso ever since.

Making Miso for a Century

ICHIKYU MISO has been used in school lunches for many years in Japan, and even now, more than 60 years later, continues to contribute to the health and nutritional education of local children.

What is miso?

Miso is a fermented food made from grains such as soybeans, rice or barley, mixed with salt and koji (Aspergilus oryzae: a spore used for fermentation in Japan).

It can be classified into rice miso, soybean miso, wheat miso, depending on the koji-inoculated grain used, and mixed miso, which is a mixture of these miso.

It can also be classified by color and flavor, which vary depending on the local characteristics and climate.

We primarily produces rice miso, and we can offer a variety of flavors, from sweet to salty.We also manufacture originally blended miso to meet our customers’ requests.

We hope you will use it in your store.
