Hallo, from Hokkaido!

Rishiri Uni - "Jewel of the Ocean"
Rishiri Island, a small island off Japan's northernmost point, is well-known "Uni Heaven" with its Rishiri Uni often referred to as "Jewel of the Ocean". During peak season, almost 90% of Gokujo Uni (grade AAA) originate from this area and is one of the most sought-after items by Michelin Star restaurants worldwide.
Sourcing premium quality fresh Uni is not an east task but as we live and work in this small island, leading Uni processor is located just down the street. This means we have daily access to the freshest Uni available in Hokkaido.
*Rishiri Uni season is typically from June - September.
Fresh Airflown Uni
We ship directly from Hokkaido, where our Uni is freshly prepared to order and not purchased from the general market.
Bypassing the larger market ensures that the freshest Uni, with a longer shelf life, is delivered all the way from Hokkaido right to your door!
Special Uni, anyone?
We can also ship top-grade Special Uni from the exclusive Uni Market. Approximately hundreds of Uni trays are stacked up high every morning at the Uni Market.
Our purveyors carefully inspect and select the best Uni available in order to meet your demands. Each tray contains top-quality Uni harvested off the famed coast of our hometown in Hokkaido.
These Uni trays are usually reserved for professional food services or high-end restaurants only but we can get it for you.
*it is by pre-order only.
