Product Characteristics

An instant, natural flavour enhancer for every occasion

Suji Aonori is most fragrant at a temperature where steam rises. Because it pairs well with freshly cooked rice, we have been attempting to create a delicious furikake (Japanese condiment sprinkle). That's when we came across Kinshichi Shoten, a bonito flakes shop in Makurazaki City, Kagoshima Prefecture. Skilled artisans carefully select the bonito, remove each bone one by one, apply and smoke the bonito paste, shape and shave the surface, and repeat the process of mold application and sun-drying many times. The Hontsuyu flakes produced by Kinshichi Shoten, painstakingly made with time and effort using one of the few remaining traditional methods, are highly acclaimed as Japan's best bonito flakes.

Only 4 ingredients are Used

This furikake combines the flavor of our Suji-Aonori, with artisanal katsuobushi bonito flakes, organic white sesame, and natural sea salt, to form a seasoning that will instantly transform your next bowl of rice, noodles, or pasta.

Sprinkle the Furikake Over Your Dish for Authentic Aroma and Flavor

The fragrance of Suji-Aonori Furikake is heightened when used as a finishing touch of a warm dish, but can also be a welcome addition to dressings for cold appetizers.

This product contains no additives, making it a safe and enjoyable seasoning for the entire family, adults and toddlers alike!


Sliced Fresh Onions Topped with Aonori Furikake

Enhance the flavor of sliced fresh onions and other favorite vegetables with our Aonori Furikake. Enjoy them sprinkled over your vegetables for a burst of umami goodness, akin to adding a flavorful dashi broth to your dish.

Sezaki's Reflections: Embracing his Passion of Bonito Flakes

Navigator: Yusuke Sezaki

Yusuke Sezaki is the fourth-generation owner of "Kaneshichi Shoten," a renowned bonito flakes shop in Makurazaki City, Kagoshima Prefecture. He continues the tradition of making bonito flakes using one of the few remaining traditional methods.Throughout the crucial mold fermentation process, "Honkarebushi Classic Flake" was crafted while playing Mozart's classical music.This unique method of production earned the prestigious Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Award at the National Bonito Flakes Evaluation Competition in 2016.

Sezaki also engages in activities aimed at preserving and passing on the tradition of bonito flakes that has been handed down in Makurazaki.

The Art of Making Bonito Flakes with Mozart's Serenade

At our shop, we take pride in creating bonito flakes that are not just a culinary delight but a true artisanal experience. Among our offerings, there's one that stands out particularly unique – our Classic Bushi Bonito flake.

Making bonito flakes first starts off with fileting and boiling the fresh bonito fish, removing bones one by one and smoking them repeatedly, allowing the beneficial molds to develop.

But what sets our Classic Bonito apart is the infusion of classical music throughout the entire mold application process. We believe that in the creation of the “Classic Bonito Flake”, classical Mozart music serves as a unique touch.

A sprinkle of Mozart gives the bonito flakes with high quality mold and aging process, enhancing both the complexity of flavors and the depth of character.

Listening to beautiful music while engaging with bonito flakes allows for a gentle and relaxing experience. We believe that this simple act holds significant meaning in itself.

While our Classic Bonito represents only under 5% of our sales, we approach its production with the same dedication and passion as we do with all our products.

And this dedication doesn't go unnoticed – it permeates through our entire range, elevating the quality of our offerings as a whole.

While we primarily focus on producing traditional bonito flakes, we understand that the definition of "traditional" can vary greatly. Some are crafted by hand, while others are mass-produced by machines.

That's why, for those interested in purchasing our products, we always encourage them to visit our factory for a firsthand look at our process.

We firmly believe in transparency and honesty, which is why we openly share our approach to working with bonito flakes during these factory visits. Our hope is that by showing how we engage with our craft, others will feel inspired to support us.

The path I was meant to follow

Even though we put so much effort and time into crafting our Classic Bonito, most of it is used for commercial purposes, which is why our brand may not always be easily visible.

Running a bonito flake shop with the traditional method is quite challenging. However, even if it means facing financial hurdles or swimming against the tide of modern business practices, we remain steadfast in our commitment to quality and tradition. And it's the words of my son that served as a guiding light for this conviction.

"I'm glad I was born into a bonito flake shop."

This was a moment when I felt proud of all my actions and realized that this was the path I was meant to follow.

Thanks to the support of those who resonate with our vision, we've been able to meet individuals who share our passion for preserving and promoting the art of bonito flakes. Our goal is not just to sell bonito flakes but to leave a legacy, to ensure that this traditional craft is celebrated and cherished for generations to come.
