ICHIDA GAKI is a dried Japanese persimmon using small Ichida kaki variety. The sugar context of the product is very high. By employing traditional drying and kneading methods, it becomes light‐brown color and soft texture with a powdery sugar coating on the surface.

Link with the local 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 persimmon. The scene of drying persimmons at famers’ house during the production period, which looks like curtains, is a typical traditional sights of the region.
