Shinnosuke Kaishin's "SHIGURE clams" was introduced in the magazine "Yahoo CREATORS".

あさりの志ぐれ煮 | 総本家新之助貝新

In Kuwana, we have developed Japanese food culture that offers a wide range of cuisines

Your Daily Table Can Be a Special Place for a Special Moment

Founded during the early Edo era.

We have been brewing and stewing Kuwana-juku's famous "Hamaguri" (clams) for over 400 years.

Kiso's three rivers cultivate the richness of the sea and mountains of Ise.

Using a secret tamari soy sauce recipe, ingredients from nature are stewed.

This is done by hand, of course.



Each day at your dinner table, SHIGURE from Shinnosuke Kaishin will provide a special moment.

About Sohonke Shinnosuke Kaishin

Who is Shinnosuke Kaishin

What is Shigure?


SHIGURE means "will" that has been passed down from generation to generation.

At Shinnosuke Kaishin, we call our SHIGURE-ni

SHIGURE was born from "mottainai" (what a waste).

There was a time when clam shells were used as medicine chests, but the contents were thrown away.

It would be a waste to throw away this precious resource nurtured by nature!

As a result, it was made into a nutritious fish dish called "SHIGURE" (boiled and seasoned).

Travelers used it as a hospitality gift and to offer to the Imperial Shogun.


From the city of Kuwana, we want to encourage the world to enjoy comforting Japanese cuisine.

We wish to aim for a better society while preserving natural resources.


We make SHIGURE with that "aspiration".

SHIGURE Yuzu and Asari clams Olive oil marinated

The tradition of making tamari soy sauce dates back to the Edo Period.
"Shigure Asari"  are stewed in olive oil with this soy sauce using the traditional method of "floating stewing".Asari clams and tamari soy sauce combine with the refreshing aroma of yuzu (a Japanese citrus fruit) to create a new taste unlike anything you've ever had. 
This is an entirely new taste.
We recommend it as a topping for salads, porridge, tofu, etc.
The snack can also be enjoyed on its own or as a snack.

The tradition of Tamari soy sauce dates back to the Edo Era.
We combine "Shigure Asari" (clams) simmered using the traditional method of "Ukikashi-ni" with miso paste using this soy sauce. Asari, soy sauce, and chili pepper flavors can be tasted as well as shigure's richness and flavor. We -Shinnosuke Kaishin. recommend this addictive spicy miso.
Salads, rice porridge, tofu, and many other dishes can be seasoned with it, such as stir-fried, grilled, and nabe dishes.
You can also serve it as a snack with beer and other alcoholic drinks.
