about the producer

yamatsu tsujita

Yamatsu Tsujita is a spice company based just outside of Osaka that is famous for their shichimi togarashi (Japanese seven spice mix) and stone-ground sansho pepper. The company is helmed by 4th generation owner Hiroyuki Tsujita, a man passionate about his craft. Tsujita-san knows each supplier personally and even helps them during harvest time. As a master blender, he knows that each ingredient has its own best season.

Tsujita-san's dedication led him to the Takanotsume (Hawk’s Claw) chili pepper, a native of Japan that had been almost completely forgotten. Tsujita-san is now the only one who grows this pepper. He prizes it for its aroma and heat. As the main component of shichimi togarashi, Tsujita-san’s use of this chili really sets his product apart from the rest.
