About the ramen.

Ramen is a Japanese noodle and soup dish which originated in China. When you make ramen you add eggs and slice the noodles thinly, while many people also add alkaline water to the mix (which is different from the method for making udon). It is said that the first person to eat ramen in Japan was Mito Mitsukuni, a famous lord, and that ramen was introduced to ordinary people in the Meiji era via Chinatown in Yokohama.

Now ramen is one of the most popular foods in Japan along with curry and rice. There are various kinds of ramen depending on how the soup is made, the thickness of the noodles and the flavorings.


Ramen are categorized according to their soup base. The main types of soup are miso, shio, and shoyu.


Among them, I will explain Shoyu ramen.


Shoyu ramen in soy sauce-based soup, flavored with soy sauce. Shoyu ramen is the most common type of ramen.In addition to noodles and soup, ramen contains Roast pork, Long onion, Salty-simmered bamboo shoots, Japanese dried laver, Boiled egg etc.

Difference in the thickness of Katsuo-Bushi

Katsuo-Bushi is classified into thin flakes and thick flakes based on the difference

in the thickness of the piece of shaving. (Layer of the flakes)
Thin flakes                                          Thick flakes
Thin flakes
Thin flakes are known as Hana-Katsuo or flowery flake because the flakes look
like flower petals.
The layer itself is only 0.5mm thin which reduces cooking time to few minutes.
By cooking the thin flakes it comes out the golden soup with wonderful flavor
which called UMAMI.
Thin flakes are used when cooking soup or as a topping in food in most of
the Japanese restaurants.
Thick flakes
When cooking highly seasoned food such as Ramen, Soba(buckwheat) noodle
and Undo(wheat) noodle thick flakes are the best choice.
Skimming the bitter taste carefully while simmer the thick flakes for more than
30 minutes until UMAMI- the rich taste is extracted.
Please see the video of cooking thick flakes below.

Thank you.

Nice to meet you.

We deliver “OISHII Smile” to the world.

“DASHI is the foundation of all cooking”. DASHI doesn’t have a stand out flavor on its own, but creates depth and richness in foods by unifying flavors of all other ingredients and seasonings . Therefore, it serves as a key ingredient in Japanese food and many chefs pay special attention to DASHI quality. We believe that the best answer to their quest for quality is to provide constant quality in our  products. The expertise in each process and strict quality inspection assures highest quality possible consistently in our products.

“DASHI” is Japanese name for “Broth” or soup made by cooking seafood or vegetables. There are many types of fish and other ingredients used as DASHI stock. Often, executive chefs in restaurants decide which ingredients to use depending on dishes or menu. DASHI serves as creating foundation of taste or UMAMI in Japanese cuisine. Without DASHI, the dish will not have depth or richness in flavor. Especially, Bonito and Kelp are known as quality broth stock as well as their compatibility with variety of foods.

Japanese cuisine emphasizes using nutritious seasonal ingredients with simple cooking methods to enhance character and quality of the selected ingredients. Food culture is one of the major factor in sustaining Japan as world’s top country for longevity. Now, there are concerns for food shortage and many pay great attention to ecology in the world. It might be meaningful to look into this healthy culture which values food ingredients. Japanese DASHI enhances quality of food materials. We introduce healthy Japanese food to the world.

We wish this Japanese culture will be inherited widely and more people in the world to  have rich and healthy food life.
