Monaka assortment with soup stock and selected ingredients

Ninben has been in business for over 320 years since its establishment in 1699, focusing on katsuobushi (dried skipjack tuna).

We have continued to do business in Nihonbashi, Tokyo, especially focusing on "Hongare-katsuobushi (fermented dried skipjack tuna)", which is said to have been established in the late Edo period. Hongare-katsuobushi is a top-quality product that has been aged over four times through repeated molding and drying in the sun.

In our long history, Ninben has created many groundbreaking products that have changed the industry's common sense, such as "Tsuyu-no-moto", which makes it easy to add the genuine taste of katsuobushi (dried skipjack tuna) to dishes, and "Fresh Pack", which allows you to enjoy the taste of freshly shaved katsuobushi (dried skipjack tuna) flakes.

We hope to continue to pass on the katsuobushi (dried skipjack tuna) that support Japanese food culture to future generations and spread the taste of dashi throughout the world.

Monaka assortment with soup stock and selected ingredients

The richly flavored soup stock from Ninben, a specialty store of katsuobushi (dried skipjack tuna), and selected ingredients are wrapped in a monaka skin.

The umami of the dashi and ingredients harmonize in the bowl to create a deeply flavored soup.

The skin of the monaka is kneaded with "shirodashi gold" (light-colored condensed soup stock) for the white and pink colors, and "tsuyu-no-moto gold" (concentrated soup base) for the brown color, so you can enjoy the taste all the way down to the skin.

The aroma of katsuobushi (dried skipjack tuna) dashi is prominent in this soup, which can be easily enjoyed by simply pouring hot water over the top.
