The 3rd generation young master is managing the Marunaka Wasabi shop where the first generation emigrated from Izu, founded in 1868 after cultivating the first Wasabisawa in Oyama. 100 years since then, this long established store provides the best wasabi raised with abundant spring water from Mt. Fuji and keeps preservation methods from old days without using preservatives or chemical seasonings at all. Wasabizuke (Wasabi pickle) pickled in stored and matured sake lees is a masterpiece with the spark of spiciness in the mild mellow taste.
In addition "Yamasodachi" is a raw wasabi monaka with wasabi kneaded in with an exquisite balance of refreshingness and fragrant smell, and there are even customers from far away who just only come to buy this. On other hand, it also produces new wasabi products such as snacks and noodles. Mail order is also available by telephone or the Internet.
