Message from a Representative

Horaiya Honten Co., Ltd. was founded in 1906 as Horaiya Kojiten. We have implemented our traditional koji manufacturing technique under our strict quality management system to manufacture amazake, miso, and seasonings for sagohachi pickles for more than 100 years since we were founded.
We strive to enhance quality of amazake, a traditional Japanese healthy drink made from koji in Heian period, and deliver higher quality amazake products to Japanese customers. We also put effort to further explore overseas markets so that customers worldwide could enjoy our amazake products.
We aim to create new koji experiences to express the beauty of Koji while treasuring traditional koji culture.
