SAKAI SHOTEN

home > artisan japan > sakai shoten
Located in the tiny town of Yamakawa on the southern tip of Kagoshima prefecture, Sakai Shoten has won multiple awards over the last several decades for their katsuobushi, including the coveted National Gold Medal. One of the last companies to cut down the katuso (skipjack tuna) by hand, each fish filet bound to be sold whole is smoothed with katsuo paste to prettify before smoking. Before fermenting and drying for 6 months, the smoked filets are given one last hand shaving to ensure a perfectly smooth and pleasing shape. A truly artisanal enterprise.
