Kishu Ume Specialty Store

Gidaian has been promoting the Kishu Nanko plum nationwide with direct sales stores in Wakayama as well as in Tokyo and Osaka. Their signature product, pickled plums (umeboshi in Japanese), are made in very particular way. Not only does it take 30-40 days to pickle the plums, but they also pickle them in three different phases. This way, the thin-skinned Nanko plums are equally soaked through so that even the seeds become tasty.

There are a variety of umeboshi products with different flavors and salt concentrations. Among them, the "Kishu Godai Ume" is a high-quality product that is ideal as a gift. It is available in a wooden and decorative box.

Only grade-A Kishu Nanko plums are used for the "Kishu Godai Ume". On top of that, the experienced masters select only those plums that have no scratch or spots on the skin and as of a certain size. It is no exaggeration to say that all the finest flavor of Nanko plums comes out in this product, which has a balanced sourness without an uncomfortable acidity, and a subtle sweetness too. 

In addition to pickled plums, the direct sales store also sells plum wine, plum juice, plum delicacies, and many other related products.
