Energize the local area



Tosashimizu City is blessed with a rich natural environment and marine products derived from the offshore Kuroshio Black Current. The Tosashimizu Genki Project was born out of the idea to promote and stimulate progress in the area by publicizing the unique characteristics of the city in agriculture, fishing, tourism and other industries. Economic organizations in the fields of agriculture and forestry, fishery, tourism, and commerce and industry have jointly invested in the Project to start the business that would process products in primary industry and supply them to hotels and shops. Since then, the Project has put down roots locally and played an important role as a central kitchen for the city, while creating employment opportunities for local residents.

Among the many beaches in Tosashimizu, Ohki no Hama is especially known for its beautiful white sand. About 2 kilometers away there is a small hill covered with trees where the following three Tosashimizu Genki Project facilities are located:

-Genki Marugoto Kobo, a processing facility for agricultural and fishery products
-Office and Food Education Center
-Ohki Freezing Center

Additionally, the Shimonokae Freezing Center, with quick freezing and refrigeration facilities, is located in Shimonokae Port.

Tosa no Shimizu Saba Ryoshizuke - Mackerel in Fisherman's Marinade

Tosa no Shimizu Saba Ryoshizuke

Big hit product of The Tosashimizu Genki Project!

People used to have to travel to Tosashimizu to enjoy the taste of fresh Shimizu Saba because it is so hard to keep saba fresh. But even if they traveled to the city from far away, there was no saba if the weather wasn't good that day. This was disappointing for both visitors and people from Tosashimizu.

We want people to enjoy our fresh tasting Tosashimizu Saba anytime and anywhere, even outside of Tosashimizu City. Tosa no Shimizu Saba Ryoshizuke - Mackerel in Fisherman's Marinade was developed to make that wish come true.

We make sashimi from saba caught in the offshore Kuroshio Black Current and immediately freeze it in a specially blended sweet and salty sauce. The technique we have developed has made it possible to enjoy delicious Tosashimizu Saba no matter where you live in Japan.

Big news in June 2013!

Tosa no Shimizu Saba Ryoshizuke - Mackerel in Fisherman's Marinade was honored as the No. 1 product in a contest organized by a major newspaper for Donburimono rice-ball cuisine. There was a tremendous consumer reaction to our victory. The product became nationally known, and in a two-month period, we received orders equal to the amount for the previous year.


Main products

We have developed 80 products to date, 20 of which are available for sale.

Our biggest seller, Tosa no Shimizu Saba Ryoshizuke - Mackerel in Fisherman's Marinade, is sold in units of 5 packages. Now it's easy to enjoy fresh and delicious Shimizu Saba at home: Just defrost a pack and eat it with cooked rice.

We have a varied product lineup, including Sodabushi Dashi Pack, Sodabushi Dashi Kobucha, Sodabushi Dashi Chazuke, Sodadashi Gelee, and Sodadashi Miso.

They all use Sodadashi (Sodabushi dried bonito), one of the traditional products of Tosashimizu, as the main source of flavoring. We also make products developed from joint projects with local fishery and agricultural businesses. Sodadashi Konatsu Non-oil Dressing and Sodadashi Ninjin Dressing come in small, fashionable bottles colored in vivid yellow and orange, respectively. These popular dressings are appreciated for their fresh and healthy taste that matches well with salads, fried foods and other dishes.
