The essence of Japanese cuisine is based on five basic flavors from Chinese food culture; sugar, salt, vinegar, soy sauce and miso. With the ability of old Japanese chefs, these 5 basic flavor evolved into five basic tastes in Japanese cooking. These basic tastes are sweet, sour, salty, bitter and spicy as in Turkish cuisine. “ITSUMI” is the symbol of these five basic Japanese taste.

Itsumi, faithful to the traditional flavors and without compromising natural flavor of foods for enjoying Japanese cuisine, was founded with a concept that enthusiasts would never give up for a long period of time.
