About "Hoshi-Gaki": "Hoshi-Gaki" is traditional Japanese dried fruit peeling persimmon and drying with sunlight. Moisture evaporates when the persimmon is dried, and the dried persimmon becomes about one-third the size of the original persimmon. As the water evaporates, the amount of vitamin C contained in the persimmon decreases, but instead, β-carotene and vitamin A increase significantly compared to normal persimmons, so eating improves blood circulation and makes the gastrointestinal tract stronger. Above all, the sweetness of dried persimmon is condensed, and the sweetness is 1.5 times that of sugar.

Above all, the traditional production method with a history of 500 years makes “Hoshi-Gaki” delicious. Careful hand kneading by manufacturers creates sweetness and softness. This product sliced the usual dried persimmon to make it handy and easy-to-eat.
