about mutsumi seika


Mutsumi Seika was founded in Kyoto in June 1937 by Yoshio Hirosawa.
Managing to survive during a difficult time when sugar, azuki beans, and other ingredients for making Japanese confections were at a premium, the company produced a wide variety of products, including the sake manju buns which have been a mainstay since our founding.
Our Fushimi Sasa Manju sake manju buns received the Honorary President Takamatsunomiya Award at the 19th National Confectionery Exposition in 1977. Thereafter, we continued to refine our unique skills and techniques for making Japanese confections and many of our sweets went on to win awards at subsequent National Confectionary Expositions. In 2017, the Kyo-macaron, only recently created at that time, received the Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Award.
Today, the company is run by the family’s fourth generation and is working on new areas of expansion, including advancing into markets outside Japan.
