The Heart of Kayanoya
In 1893, a small soy sauce maker opened for business in the Japanese village of Kubara, on the southern Japanese island of Kyushu. This was the beginning of Kayanoya. Great seasonings remain the heart of what we do. Kyushu has centuries of tradition in farming, and harvesting from pristine seas. Purity and freshness are essential ideals in Japan, and we keep those traditions alive in everything we do.
Our Unique Commitment to Fresh New Cuisine
Kayanoya takes maximum care with the creation of every product. We wanted to devote the same level of care to every step of the food preparation process. Thus Kayanoya built a "slow food" restaurant that specializes in finding and delivering the authentic tastes of Japan, with a special emphasis on fresh, seasonal ingredients.
Our customers, including famous chefs, come from every corner of the world, helping us discover the very best new dishes.
From Japan to Your Home
Our customers regularly tell us that they want to be able to reproduce our restaurant's innovative cuisine at home. All Kayanoya seasonings are crafted specifically to help connect people around the world to the joy of delicious, fresh, and healthy food--with no artificial flavors or preservatives.

Give Everyone More Time to Enjoy Great Food
It takes time and effort to create fine food, but it's always worth it.
We all wish we had unlimited time to prepare every dining experience--and give each meal the attention it deserves. However, for most of us, time is a precious commodity. We simply have too many things to do.
To help, Kayanoya offers carefully crafted products that help you create delicious, authentic dishes with a minimum of fuss.
We start by selecting our ingredients with extraordinary care. We visit farmers and other suppliers throughout Japan personally, and we choose only the very best. We know the precise source of every ingredient--and then we work to find the best way to bring out the rich flavor and essence of each one.
Our professional chefs strive to discover the perfect tastes--and then make it easy to reproduce those flavors at home.
We incorporate fresh ingredients that reflect each season, reproducing the authentic tastes of traditional Japan.
Quality food every day is vital for a healthy life. We offer choices that are both enjoyable to make, and delicious to eat.
To ensure that we continue to pass down all the traditions of fine cuisine, we strive to preserve the knowledge and livelihoods of skilled craftspeople. It is their expertise and care that makes Kayanoya products special.
