What is Ninben?

1699Ninben, famous for "Katsuobushi", was founded more than 300 years ago, in 1699, by Ihee Tokatsu. When he moved to Edo in 1691 from his home town in Mie pref, he became the apprentice of a grain trader named Tarokichi Aburaya. It was in 1699 when he began trading in Katsuobushi and shioboshi (salted and dried fish) in Nihonbashi, Tokyo. This was the very beginning of the company.

1979Ninben was awarded the Emperor's Prize at the 18th Agricultural, Forestry, and Fisheries Festival for the development of the Katsuobushi Fresh Pack, and for its contribution to the expansion of the industry and promotion of stable management in the bonito fishing industry.
