In Japan, the world's leading country of longevity, people have been eating “Nori”, which is made from natural seaweed, as a precious source of nutrition since ancient times.
Looking back the history, it is recorded that “Nori” was offered as a special gift to the Imperial Court in Japan's first code of laws, Taiho‐Ritsuryo, established twelve centuries ago.
Having a lot of nutrition from the sea, “Nori” was cultivated after cultivation technology was established in Edo Era about 300 years ago.
Since then “Nori” has become one of the popular food items in Japanese families.

And also, as it has a lot of nutrition in it, Nori has become a popular gift item.
YAMAMOTO NORITEN Company was founded in Edo Era in 1849, and has obtained significant trust from people as a producing company of high quality “Nori” since then.

Story on “NORI” and “HEALTH”.

“NORI”, collected from the sea, is a highly healthy food with low calories containing balanced nutrition such as protein, calcium, various vitamins, iron, and vegetable fibers. It is believed to be effective on recovery from fatigue, strengthening of skin and mucous, and reduction of cholesterol. A study in U.S.A. indicated that Leaf Acid, richly contained in “NORI”, has an effect to prevent dementia even. “NORI” is a fundamental food to maintain healthy life. It is quite understandable that Japanese people, who eat a lot of “NORI”, have longer life. With “NORI”, you may have long life!
