Floating in the Seto Inland Sea, Shodoshima Island enjoys a warm and stable climate throughout the year. Sesame oil, which is a specialty product of Kagawa Prefecture, began to be produced on Shodoshima around 150 years ago. The traditional taste of sesame oil continues to be preserved by utilizing Shodoshima’s natural environment as well as the latest technology. Producers are entirely focused on manufacturing sesame products which are tailored to meet the needs of consumers, such as pure sesame oil, pure white sesame oil, and black sesame oil. Shodoshima sesame oil is widely used not only in households, but also by businesses like restaurants or processed foods manufacturers. Loved not only in Japan but all over the world, “genuine sesame oil” is a product unique to Kagawa, where people insist on using only 100% pure sesame oil.
