The Umeya confectionery shop was established in Asahikawa city, Hokkaido in 1914 so it started out as a Japanese confectionery shop 100 years ago.
Since the city is located in the Kamikawa Basin, the climate is hot in summer, even in cool Hokkaido, and it is not uncommon for the temperature to exceed 30 degrees Celsius. On the other hand, it is also famous for its severe winters, with Japan's lowest temperature ever recorded by the Japan Meteorological Agency at 41 degrees below zero. The difference in temperature between the two seasons creates a balance between the four seasons, and produces delicious crops with high natural sugar content and nutritional value.
Umeya continues to produce confectioneries using ingredients produced in Asahikawa and other parts of Hokkaido. They would be happy if their confectionaries could make people feel the pure sensibility of Hokkaido, the clean air, the delicious water, the forests, and the brightness of life.
