にじいろの樹 ”Nijiiro no Ki”
We are dedicated to creating a place of employment for many individuals with disabilities through craftsmanship.
We produce products that prioritize additive-free, pesticide-free vegetables and seasonings, as well as materials native to Yakushima Island. This includes vegetables like potatoes, tofu, tangerine juice, miso, and more. These items are popular souvenirs from Yakushima, both on the island and beyond.
This cafe is located right in front of the Onoaida Onsen, situated in the Onoaida settlement to the south of Yakushima, at the foot of Mount Mocchomu. We use soy milk from “Yokatan Tofu,” produced at Jiiro no Ki Workshop, to make soft-serve ice cream. Additionally, we offer meals like barley rice made from our own cultivated barley, served with Yakushima-produced dashi for ochazuke (a light snack), and a selection of takeaway drinks.
We take pride in our commitment to cultivating pesticide-free vegetables and providing freshly laid eggs, all grown with care and attention to the soil.
よかたん豆腐 ”Yokatan Tofu”
Our popular tofu is made at Jiiro no Ki, following a traditional and time-honored production method. We craft it with great care, using only Yakushima’s water, soybeans from Kyushu, nigari (coagulant), and rice bran. Each piece is made with a lot of heart and dedication.
