Torism and Products


Kitakami Croquette

This new product from Kitakami is made using Futago Satoimo, Japanese Black Beef, Shirayuri Pork, and asparagus.

Kitakami Gyu

This top class brand of beef is raised in an ideal natural environment and receives rave reviews. The quality of the meat is at the top level nationwide.

Green Asparagus

Raised in the rich soil of Kitakami, Iwate, this asparagus has a condensed mild umami flavor. It’s so soft that you can eat it down to the base without peeling the skin. The sweetness and flavor are outstanding!



Baked locally with natural cheese, it is distinguished by its smoothness and perfect hint of sourness.

Onikenbai Masks

Onikenbai is a traditional folk dance from Kitakami where the dancers purify evil through manifesting as gods and Buddhas.
These paulownia wood masks create a very strong impression, and in addition to their use in the actual dance, they are popular as souvenirs and protective charms.

Sakura Dyeing

These hand-dyed items are made with plant dye made primarily from local cherry blossoms from Kitakami. Handkerchiefs, neckties, kimonos, and other items are available.

Kuwa Cha (Mulberry Tea)

This tea is sweet, pleasant to drink, and caffeine-free.
