In Japan, we have summer holidays called "Obon" from August 8 to 16.
Have you ever heard of Obon in japan?
It is believed that our ancestor's spirits will return home in Obon, and Obon is the most important Buddhist event. Families get together to welcome ancestors or visit their graves. This family event is highly adored, and many companies are closed for about a week.
For this reason, most manufacturers are off work from August 8 to 16, and products on backorder will take longer time to be shipped than usual. Response from our customer service will be also delayed.
Below is our operation schadule. We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause you. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Do you know "Daikon oroshi"? Daikon oroshi is grated daikon (Japanese white radish) and specific to Japan. It isn’t eaten alone but with grilled fish, soba, udon, Japanese rolled Tamagoyaki omelette, and hotpot. It is piquant and adds refreshing flavor to the dishes. We would like to show you the tips to make tasty daikon oroshi!
Generally, shaved ice used to be more like crunchy and rough granular. However, the latest ones are fluffier and finely granular like “iced mango” in Taiwan. We would like to show you an ice shaving machine named “Black Swan” manufactured by Ikenaga Iron Works Co., Ltd, which can make fluffy shaved ice at home. In summer, ice shaving machines must be very helpful especially for those who live in areas with high temperatures!
