The road that Yamamoto Kamaboko Ltd. has walked and now.
Our company was founded in 1938 at Murotsu in Muroto,Kochi Pref where quite a lot of fishs are landed.
When longline fishing started, fishermen couldn’t stop working for almost half a day, and it is said that they ate only rice balls and tempura to save time. Yamamoto’s fried fish cake (tempura) was loaded as food on the boat that went out to the pelagic fishing. Fishermen who knew the taste of fish better than anyone recognized the taste and nominated and like Yamamoto’s tempura.
Yamamoto’s tempura is elastic, including the sweetness and deliciousness (Umami) of nature. It is a taste raised by fishermen who know all about fish. Founded in 1938, it stubbornly preserves the taste created by the first Mitsuru Yamamoto. Because we are “IGOSSO”.
