Yuzu & Gokkun Umaji-Mura

  
   Yuzu is a kind of citrus fruit, which began to be grown by a part of the once flourishing lumber industry in Kochi. After the industry collapsed due to low lumber prices, many sought new income sources.

 
   Yuzu blooms during May to June. After the flowers bloom in the rainy season, the tiny fruits start to appear from July, then grow and gradually turn yellow during autumn and winter. That is why the yuzu sold in winter has a yellow colour and in summer, a green colour. Yuzu has more citric acid and vitamin C than other fruits, and is especially good for your skin.


   Gokkun Umaji-Mura is a kind of soft drink which is made from yuzu and is the main product of Umaji Village, in Eastern Kochi. This drink has a sweet-sour smell and clear taste that is loved by all Kochi people. Gokkun Umaji-Mura juice is well balanced, with yuzu and honey. People say it looks like lemonade but is even more delicious!

  2. The yuzu juice has been exported to Scandinavia and last year was used (together with ginger) to add flavour to the vintage variety of the Swedish traditional Christmas hot wine drink - "glögg"! Fantastic!
