The god of confectionary smiles at KAnoZA

KAnoZA literally has two different meanings.
The realm of the Confectionary God
The realm of the Fire God

Izumo is a sacred place in Japan where all Shinto gods are believed to return to every year. Since ancient times, fire was one of the spiritual elements. Cultural arts were started using fire, such as sword making and pottery.

Today, KAnoZA has inherited the spiritual element of fire to craft delectable flavors of western style confectionary.

A place for match making

Izumo Taisha is one of the most well known shrines in Japan, remaining as the oldest and largest of its kind. The shrine is often included in Shinto folklore, where it is believed to be the place where Shinto gods congregate and like Cupid, bless the prospects of men and women finding true love. Based on the old lunar calendar, this takes place in October, when various other festivals are also held.

The legends of Izumo were written in Japan's oldest spiritual scriptures in the book called, "Kojiki". The ancient stories were based on the god named "Amaterasu Ohmikami", the creator of Japan. It was written that the gods created humans, oceans, rivers, mountains, and all living creatures. Two other gods called "Izanagi" and "Izanami" gave birth to the country and 35 other gods including the gods of mountains, fire, earth, water and food. Thereafter their offspring created more gods of different elements, amounting to a group of 8 million gods, called "Yaorozu no kami" of Shinto. It is believed that these 8 million gods all return and congregate at Izumo Shrine every year, to ensure that life goes on for all time.

Home of the heart

Home of the heart

Water is a highly respected element in Japanese culture. People regard it as the source of life and also see it as a looking glass that transcends time, beauty and art. The beautiful sunset colors in the water at Lake Shinji for example are believed to be a reflection of the heavens.


"Natural-Slow" is a new and sustainable concept of that gourmet food grower experts in Izumo created, to specialize in the premium quality of natural and time nurtured ingredients used in order to make a high-end confectionary product.
All the components such as milk, eggs and spring water included are carefully selected in the process to bring out the most organic and time-nurtured flavors. We aim to build this trust and relationship with the suppliers and continue to pass down the same level of craftsmanship to future generations.
