Interior Content: 85g (3.00oz)

OKAKI rice crackers have been the most popular staple snack in Japan since ancient times. It goes well with Sencha, Genmaicha, or Houjicha teas. This OKAKI is traditionally-made by hand using only natural ingredients sourced only in Japan. As premium handmade rice cracker, we have prepared MASAGO ISHI OKAKI sprinkled with black pepper with a spicy accent.

OKAKI is essentially toasted cut and dried MOCHI rice cake. In Japan, OKAKI is available in a wide range of quality: ranging from average quality found at the local grocery, to high quality from specialty shops such as the OKAKI sold here at Hibiki-an. It is said that OKAKI rice cracker handmade by traditional methods is most tasty, though it requires much time and effort and can be quite expensive.

The OKAKI sprinkled with Black Pepper is a modern product that mixes Japanese and Western styles, and you will be very satisfied not only with Japanese Tea but also with alcohol.

Handmade at FUJISAWA EISHOHDO in Kyoto. FUJISAWA EISHOHDO is known for creating OKAKI using a traditional manufacturing process with careful attention to quality and natural ingredients. The third generation Fujisawa consistently takes the time and effort to follow the traditional production method. The third generation Fujisawa’s goal is to produce traditional handmade rice crackers at a reasonable price. And another principle of the third generation Fujisawa is bringing out the inherent good flavor of natural and wholesome foods without artificial additives.

As above, if OKAKI is produced according to the traditional process, MOCHI rice cake should be produced first. However, OKAKI produced in a modern factory does not use MOCHI rice cake, but rice powder because it can cut much time and effort. At the same time, unfortunately it fully ruins the inherent flavor of MOCHI or rice, so that it has to be seasoned by additives strongly.

This OKAKI is developed in order to bring out the inherent excellent flavor of MOCHI rice cake. To enjoy the fine savory flavor of toasted MOCHI, black pepper is applied as a savory spicy accent. The savory aroma is brought by FUJISAWA EISHOHDO’s original technique. Also, MASAGO ISHI means “cute rounded stone on the beach” in Japanese.

No artificial additives
