Tasty blessings of the earth
from Yatsugatake Mountains
Rich land at the foot of Yatsugatake Mountains
where renowned mineral water springs out in the lush forests of Hakushu.
Nature's blessings of this plentiful land
are made into confectionery with our great attention and passion.
YATSUDOKI - it is time to take a break and enjoy the best confectionery.
It is time to relax your mind, and
to savour the taste of the freshest ingredients,
feeling as if you are in a refreshing wind blowing from highlands.
In old Japan, YATSUDOKI (eighth period of the day) meant 3 o’clock, time for afternoon snack, thus our name “YATSUDOKI”.
“YATSU” in YATSUDOKI means “eight”, a number associated with prosperous future in Japan. It also appears in the name of Yatsugatake Mountains with eight peaks.

For you and people dear to you.
Our passion for the best ingredients has brought us to the source of water of life.
Mount Kaikoma in Minami Alps. The “Hakushu” forest, famous for its mineral water, is the home of YATSUDOKI confectionery.
Purified by rocks, protected by the earth and nurtured by the lush forest, the renowned mineral water is the secret in bringing out the distinct flavor of every ingredient.
Freshly drawn water is filled with the scents of trees of the forest and cool, refreshing breeze.
Its freshness is felt right in our products.
To help cows produce delicious milk, it is important to feed them on grass rather than grains.
Carefully produced milk is best when used fresh in making confectionery.
That’s why our Farm-Factory system matters.
Fresh milk is directly delivered from our farm daily for immediate use in confectionery production.
Then it is delivered straight to our shops, and to you.
Enjoy the sweet aroma and rich flavor of milk in our delicious confectionery.

We start making confectionery by cultivating a field.
The birthplace of YATSUDOKI is found in Yamanashi Prefecture at the foot of magnificent Yatsugatake Mountains, and the local farms and ranches that are passionate about producing truly delicious ingredients.
How do we produce good ingredients for delicious confectionery?
How do we prepare soil and cultivate field to produce such ingredients?
Our confectionery making starts with these questions, as we work with farmers sharing the same goal and enthusiasm with us.
