A village of Kagura dancing prayers to the stars

The village of Shiromi is located in the mountains of Miyazaki Prefecture in southern Japan. In this small village with a population of less than 200 people, there is the Shiromi Kagura, which has been handed down for more than 500 years and is designated as an important intangible folk cultural asset by the government. Hoshi no Kagura, the only Kagura in Japan that offers prayers to the stars through the dance of the gods, is the spiritual pillar of the people living in the village, and a symbol of the sacred nature and people living in unity.

Yuzu Village, living for 1,000 years
under the mountain gods

For more than 50 years, starting with 1,300 yuzu trees and overcoming the hardship of being wiped out by a severe cold wave, the village has grown to become the largest yuzu producing area in Miyazaki Prefecture, with more than 6,000 trees.
It has also developed into a "yuzu industry" where the producers themselves process and sell the yuzu, creating jobs in the village.

The idea behind YUZU QUEEN

A product for
the next generation

The challenges facing Japan's communities include a shortage of future leaders due to a declining and aging population, dysfunctional social infrastructures, frequent natural disasters due to worsening environmental problems, and the depletion of natural resources.
In these uncertain times, we want to continue to build on the history of the region and to pass on the traditions and culture of the region to future generations with a strong sense of mission and desire. We believe that the power of each one of us is small, but if we connect with each other, we can gradually become a big power and create new original values. This is how YUZU QUEEN was born.
We hope that when you pick up this product, you will feel what we have put into it.
