The best-tasting Shiitake grows on Japanese Sweet Oak.

We were awarded the 2020 Sustainability Award by the Japanese Government, endorsed by Iron Chef Judge Dr. Hattori Yukio, and have Organic, Kosher, and ISO22000 certifications.

600+ local growers cut wild oak trees into logs, cure the logs before introducing shiitake spawn for a two-season harvest. The logs will last 5-7 years before they are replaced, and the wild oak grows back naturally in 15 years. The periodic cutting of trees helps promote better plant undergrowth and water quality. Growers carefully tailor their harvest to meet different weather and micro-climates.
