Belief in our work（since 2009）
Since established, our business has been mainly
with Kanagawa prefecture and Yokohama city government.
As our new unique publication business, we have stated
to cmpilate and edit Japanese traditional recipes in each region
using the acquired resources and network.
Recent trend toward nuclear families, easy fast food, and
convenisence store food...our food trdition is ceasing.
It is importanto to record valuable knowledge that people
who lived Taisho era and the biginning of Showa era acquired.
Like we pass on our nature to the children, it is our duty
to pass on our traditional food culture to the next generation.
Recent amid calls for Shokuiku - dietary education - and
Chisan Chisho - local production for local consumption -
maybe an alarm against mordern Japanese losing our identity.
We are living in a crazy world where children murdering their
parents, and parents torturing and murdering their children.
We believe that at-home meals sitting at the table with
family members provides an important occasion to wind-down
and communicate with each other. It is a basis for establishing
Food is a central aspect of our life as well as a basis for
human relationship. Through food, we could learn about our
environment; fields, forest, rivers, ocean.
My wish is that our OKAZU book would serve readers as a
companion to help getting back natural eating habit, also
as a grandmother passing on traditional home-style cookings.
