"I earnestly desire that many young people filled with conscience will be raised and sent out by our school."

I decided to take on the role of the engine to promote the project and make it a sustainable effort by earning profits as a business.
I participated in the project under the philosophy that I carry out reforms themselves.

As a third generation, I succeeded the family business founded in 1935, which majored in baked confectionery and chocolate, and "pecan nut chocolate" released in 2010 became one of the popular products.
One third of the 300 tons of pecan nuts imported into Japan is brought to your mouth as this "pecan nut chocolate". This pecan nut is very nutritious, and it is said that it contains antioxidant substance among all nuts. Antioxidants are said to have effects on anti-aging, lifestyle diseases, and dementia prevention. Through its pecan nuts, we aim to solve agriculture regeneration , employment creation, regional creation, and social problems caused by aging in the Rikuzentakata area.

Moreover, this project brandizes Rikuzentakata pecan nuts like wine of Napa Valley, and not only builds the production and distribution base of pecan nuts, but also create the culture of eating them widely in the country. In addition to that, this includes a concept to extend the community creation.

It requires ten years for pecan nut seedlings to be able to harvest. Until then, we will import them from Arizona colleagues, and build a factory in Rikuzentakata city, then process them in several years.

Golden pecan Co., Ltd. creates the culture by proposing a new value and lifestyle in the country. Growing domestic production and distribution of nuts, we as a team would like to take a part of agricultural revitalization and regional creation of Rikuzentakata city.
