Kitou-Yuzu from Tokushima Prefecture
Tokushima Prefecture is the second largest producer of Yuzu in Japan.
It is safe and pesticide-free.
Kitou-Yuzu is produced in the Kitou district of Naga-cho, located in the southern part of Tokushima Prefecture, surrounded by high mountains where produces exceptionally fragrant citrus fruits.
All of the Yuzu used in Yuzu-Rikko is grown in Tokushima Prefecture and no pesticides are used during the growing period.
Without the pesticides, normally Yuzu would have many blemishes, rough skin, and flaws, and there would be very few beautiful Yuzu.
However, its aroma is outstanding. You can tell that it has been grown with the power of the earth.

It is made on consignment by Yamaku Food Corporation, a local miso maker established in 1894.
Tensai Sugar from Hokkaido
Sugar is known to be made from sugar cane, but Tensai-sugar is made from a vegetable called "Tensai". Most of the sugar available in Japan is made from Australian sugar cane.
Yuzu-Rikko is particular about using domestic sugar and came up with Tensai-sugar from Hokkaido.
This sugar is made from Tensai, a plant found in cold regions of Japan, and is known for its ability to warm the body.
Tensai rock ice sugar
The above granulated sugar is extracted from Hokkaido's "Tensai", refined, and crushed once more, then slowly crystallized naturally over a period of two weeks.
It is called "rock ice sugar" because it is as big as a rock.
Its purity is 99.8%, making it the purest of all.
When combined with Yuzu, it creates a wonderful harmony. The largest one is 7 cm in length and diameter. We crush them and use.
