Our producer in Tokushima, Japan, harvests organically grown fruits such as sudachi, yuzu, ume and ginger to create wonderful preserves and syrups. He uses sugar from beetroots and apple vinegar to ensure that every product is 100% natural and free from artificial additives and preservatives. Thanks to his rigidly wholesome approach, each product is beautifully balanced to allow the essence of the fruit to shine through. Our ume syrup, made from Japanese sour plums, is wonderfully tangy. Enjoy a refreshing drink of ume syrup and sparkling water (or for the adults, an ume mojito?). In Tokushima, they love drizzling it over shaved ice for a cool treat on a hot day.

Prefecture: Tokushima

Many descend on Tokushima City every August for the large-scale Awa Odori dance festival, but the prefecture offers outdoor fun in every season.

Tokushima is most famous for the Awa Odori Festival, which brings hordes of tourists during the Obon holiday period in August. But the prefecture, located on the eastern corner of Shikoku, offers beautiful nature and outdoor thrills all year round. Try out white-water rafting in spring or surfing in summer. Enjoy locally brewed sake in the town of Awa Ikeda during cooler months, or trek part of the Shikoku Pilgrimage Route. Off the coast lie the Naruto whirlpools, best viewed from sightseeing cruises.

As buckwheat is the local crop rather than rice, soba is always sure bet. Sobagome zosui is a thick porridge/gratin-style dish made by boiling the soba seeds and won’t be found anywhere else in Japan.
