Dear Japanese Taste, I ordered Ichida Hoshigaki on your website from two different producers. Both of them were delicious. Please advise me when they become available again either at the end of 2019 or beginning of 2020. If you decide to offer other fine Japanese food products on your website in the future, might you consider adding Kurozu amber rice vinegar from Kagoshima and Makurazaki katsuoboshi from Kagoshima? 親切なサービスに感謝します.
Dear Neil, Thanks for your nice review. We will advise you when the next season's Hoshigaki are available at our shop. We also acknowledge your requests and will try to find quality suppliers for the Kurozu amber rice vinegar and Makurazaki katsuoboshi from Kagoshima. Thanks again for your message. Kind regards, Erica Japanese Taste
