The shop front


Since 1836, we have been producing and distributing Nama-fu (fresh fu) and Nama-yuba (fresh tofu skin). Fu is made from gluten that is extracted from wheat flour. Using water from the clear Nagara River, we make various types of Fu products including Nama-fu (fresh fu), Yaki-fu (grilled fu), Fu manju (bun), and Kaku-fu (rectangular-shaped fu). Nama-fu is rich in plant protein and regarded as healthy, slow food. A variety of products are available for gifts.


Back in 1836, Heitaro Kawashima founded this business in the Hon-machi 5th street in Gifu, specializing in producing and distributing both Nama-fu (fresh fu) and Yaki-fu (grilled fu). Later, Heisuke Kawashima, the 3rd generation owner of the shop, transferred the business to Yamato-cho and his successor, Heisuke, the 4th generation, handed over the Yaki-fu production business to his younger brother. Since then, the shop has been producing only Nama-fu.
