Our signature confectionery, the “Shizen Series”, takes into account the season of fruit, and makes use of the appearance, shape, and flavor of the fruit to create seasonal Japanese sweets.

“Gen” is the origin of Japanese sweets “Kiccho” is a sign of joy “An” is a place where people gather

At Soke Minamoto Kitchoan, craftsmen make the bean paste at their own factory. The number of times the bean paste is exposed and the cooking method are adjusted according to the type of beans, in pursuit of the beauty, texture, and flavor of the finished product. Another feature of Soke Minamoto Kitchoan is that they use special bean pastes for each type of Japanese sweets. The bean paste that goes well with the fruit brings out the flavor of the fruit, and for Japanese sweets where the bean paste is the main character, we are particular about the selection of the materials used for the bean paste, so that you can enjoy the taste, color, and flavor even more. In line with the Japanese sweets we aim for, we are particular about the filling we use, and strive to make carefully and delicate Japanese sweets that bring out the best of the ingredients.
The deliciousness of sweets comes from carefully selected fruit production When making confectionery that takes advantage of nature’s bounty, “fruit,” it is important to be particular about the fruits that serve as the ingredients. Soke Minamoto Kitchoan established the agricultural production corporation Minamoto Kitchoan Farm in 2013 as an initiative to focus on fruit. The Muscat of Alexandria grown at the farm is a variety whose production has been decreasing in recent years due to the emergence of new varieties. Muscat of Alexandria, which has sweetness, elegant sourness, and a noble aroma, is an essential ingredient in Soke Minamoto Kitchoan’s “Rikuno Hoju,” and we are working to protect and cultivate this variety. . Cultivation requires experience and knowledge, and there are still many challenges to overcome, but the first harvest was made in 2015, and muscats harvested at the farm are currently used in some of Rikunohoju.

In addition, we are thinking and working on the future of Japanese sweets production by collaborating with the local governments where the fruit is produced. Starting with high-quality Muscat from Okayama Prefecture, known as the fruit kingdom, Tottori Prefecture produces sweets using high-quality agricultural products and seafood, and Ehime Prefecture cultivates peaches, chestnuts, loquats, and persimmons at partner farms. I’m here. At our Ehime Uwajima factory, we primarily process fresh fruits such as peaches, chestnuts, loquats, and persimmons purchased from partner farms into syrup-pickled and candied stewed fruits. We aim to make better Japanese sweets by processing fruits in a fresher state and by processing them in a way that is appropriate for the Japanese sweets we are aiming for.

The Quality Assurance Department not only conducts sampling surveys during the manufacturing process and manages the hygiene of manufacturing staff, but also thoroughly confirms ingredient labeling and production areas. In addition, the Quality Assurance Department is involved in product development and conducts various activities to deliver safe sweets. Because our sweets make the most of the flavor of the ingredients, we strive to achieve stable quality.
