Taste of Traditional Heritage


History of Tendon (tempura rice bowl), a beloved commoners food in Japan,

is known to date back to the Edo era (1603–1867).

Our brand name, "Kohaku (amber)", embodies our commitment to

"capture the genuine flavors of ingredients while embracing the history and tradition of tendon", just like ambers encapsulating the integrity of ancient plants and other creatures

and continuing to glimmer today.

A bowl of our supreme tendon epitomizes the spirit of "visiting old, learning new."

Tendon Kohaku is a proud testament to Japan's delectable tradition of tendon.
