Shiitake Mushrooms are yet another Hachijojima Specialty!
Hachijojima is an island blessed with many of Mother Nature’s treasures, and the Shiitake- an edible and medicinal mushroom- is another of its countless gifts. Dairyu Farm has made a successful business harvesting Umikaze Shiitake-Mushroom to sell to an ever-increasing market base. Founder Mr. Ryuji Osawa acknowledged the skyrocketing demand via the company’s Facebook page. He says that they have their hands tied with orders, and that new deliveries can take up to six months to fulfill!
