Chinriu Honten was established in 1871 in Odawara by Monya Komine who until then was the last chief cook of Odawara castle. He started a high class restaurant that also offered umeboshi pickles, which became popular gifts.The second generation of Komine decided to abandon the restaurant and to focus on umeboshi and pickles.
These days Chinriu Honten is run by fifth generation of the Komine family. Chinriu Honten produces and retails products made of Japanese fruits and herbs such as ume plum, yuzu lime or shiso herb. Only the best ingredients are selected from contract farmers to produce according to traditional recipes.
