It contains quail egg, chestnut, burdock root, apricot, shiitake mushroom, bamboo shoot, rice, chicken, green peas, red ginger, and spices. While mass production is carried out, the particular manufacturing method has been passed down to the present.

We created this product in response to customer feedback that Mashiko ware containers are heavy.
The Mashiko ware kiln container is the symbol of Touge no kamameshi. Its round and smooth shape and texture are expressed with the texture of Japanese paper.
The raw material is sugarcane pomace, a material that would normally be discarded, and is being reused in an environmentally friendly manner in the region.
