Color, Taste, And Scent: Only From Natural Ingredients


This yuzu kosho doesn’t use any additives, coloring, nor artificial fragrance. Therefore, you can enjoy the original taste of the ingredients, beautiful natural colors, and rich flavors.

The secret of fragrance lies in the unique blend of Hagi's yuzu peel. You can enjoy the rich scent of Yuzu as it is without using additional fragrances.

Two Flavors: Red & Green


Red Yuzu Kosho is made from ripe yellow yuzu peel, red chili pepper, and salt. It features the spreading aroma of ripe yuzu and the bright natural color of red pepper.

On the other hand, green yuzu pepper is made from blue yuzu peel, which is harvested when it is still young, green chili pepper, and salt. The subdued and refreshing aroma of young yuzu and the sharp spiciness of green chili peppers create an exquisite taste.

Hagi Yuzu That Is Grown In A Rich Natural Environment

Yellow Hagi Yuzu

Hagi City, Yamaguchi Prefecture, has been cultivating Yuzu for a long time.

If you go deep in the mountains, you will find Yuzu that grows naturally, and some areas are designated as national natural monuments because of the beauty of the landscape.

To continue Yuzu cultivation in its natural habitat, Hagi Yuzu is grown in an environment where pesticides do not reach them, so the natural environment won’t be destroyed.

For The Red Chili Pepper We Also Use Precious Domestic Products

Red Chili Peppers

Domestic production of chili peppers in Japan is only 200 tons per year, which is less than 3% of the peak (7000 tons in 1963 is the highest).

Against this background, it seems that the chili peppers used in yuzu kosho are often imported from overseas, such as those made in China.

With the strong desire to deliver domestic yuzu kosho, this product uses precious domestically produced green peppers.
