Link with the Production Area

Shimo-Ichida (currently Takamori Town) in Shimo-Ina County is the birthplace of ICHIDA GAKI. The region’s temperature gap between day and night creates high sugar content persimmon.  Also, the river fog generated during late fall to early winter brings preferable temperature and humidity for producing high quality dried Kaki.
