イセヒカリ天酒☆世界プロジェクト日本語全文はこちらからどうぞ

In the year of 2019, when the light of love of the universe shines, we thank you from the bottom of our heart for the precious tie through Kickstarter !

Each of the members of Unity House Project have been doing the work and activities of the natural business to organic food, clothing and shelter including natural foods, holding the mission of creation of «Unity House», the house is "Everyone's house where our heart, body and spirit are unified and harmonized".

We came to think "Can we create products that will help people to be unified and harmonized in the future?" , and we had arrived at the theme of "creating the koji food by using the sacred rice called Isehikari".

All of the members of Unity House Project are 50s to 60s.(bornbetween 1957 ~ 1964) We are living more happily by encountering sacred rice called Isehikari.
All of the members of Unity House Project are 50s to 60s.(bornbetween 1957 ~ 1964) We are living more happily by encountering sacred rice called Isehikari.

After that, we received a lot of support through Japan's first cloudfunding, and then, thanks to the support with love from the people all over Japan, "Isehikari Amazake" (the sweet, non-alcoholic fermented drink made from unpolished Isehikari rice, certified by Organic JAS) was born ! 

Our product, "Isehikari Amazake" is Japan's greatest "koji" food that is useful for mental and physical health and harmony, which is created from Isehikari rice with the excellent genetic characteristics found in the sacred rice field of Ise Jingu (Shrine) and the only one kind of koji in Japan naturally living in the home facility for fermentation.

And this time, through wonderful Kickstarter, we, all of our members are so grateful to able to announce【Isehikari Amazake ☆ World Project】of Unity House Project !

Isehikari is rice found in Ise Jingu, the oldest shrine in Japan, which is considered to have the highest shrine status.

Ise Jingu enshrines the most supreme god in Japan, "Amaterasu Omikami", and has been keenly believed by people since ancient times. During the summit meeting of the 7 developed countries held in 2016 near Ise Jingu, the leaders of the countries visited there, and from their impression that they felt, it became known worldwide as a Japanese energy spot.

In Ise Jingu, there is a paddy field that self-suits rice to serve "Amaterasu Omikami" every day and Isehikari was discovered by chance there. Due to the big typhoon hit in 1988, only two stalksof rice were upright although all the stalks in the field fell over. Those two were Isehikari.

New varieties of rice are researched under the control of the government. However, as this Isehikari is the rice that had suddenly grown in a paddy field of Ise Jingu, the government has not been concerned in this variety of rice, and the hearty and earnest farmers have been carrying out the spontaneous cultivation and its distribution.

Therefore, this variety of rice is not common even now, but this rice is suitable for saying that it is a gift from "Amaterasu Omikami" that is indeed the symbol of love, light and rich harvest.

Isehikari has a thicker stalk than those of the conventional varieties, does not fall down easily, has high yield, and has disease resistance. Therefore, it is drawing attention as a variety suitable for organic cultivation.

As Isehikari is hard type rice different from the common Japanese rice variety such as Koshihikari and other varieties, the texture is refreshing. It is a precious rice because it has a characteristic that sweetness is strong and it has a characteristic of lightness that prevents it from lying heavy in the gastrointestinal tract.

Strangely enough, Isehikari also has the property of causing mutations naturally with high probability even if it is cultivated normally, and it is said that it probably includes [transposon] (a moving gene).

Until now, transposons have been found only in the fossilized rice, but if Isehikari rice includes a transposon, it can be said that "Isehikari rice is evolving as it is alive."

We have been fascinated by the organic characteristics of Isehikari rice which has the sacred energy of high vibration, and moreover which makes it possible to cultivate without requiring agrichemicals. We would like to continue to explore the great possibilities of this rice in the future.

* "Transposon" is a base sequence capable of freely moving the position on the genome within a cell, discovered by Dr. Barbara McClintock in 1940. (In 1983, she won the Nobel Prize in medicine and physiology in this study.)

The production of organic rice by Mr. Koichi Tamura, the producer of organic Isehikari, which is the raw material for "Isehikari Amazake", began reclaiming the mountains ranging to Kasugayama mountains primitive forest which is located in Nara City and is registered in the World Heritage Site in order to make the ideal paddy field.

Since he has much concern with the water of his paddy field that he himself calls "the scared place", he uses the pure underground water pulled, only for his paddy field, from Kasugayama mountains system in order to prevent agrichemicals, etc. from inflowing in his paddy field from other places.

In addition, when setting out young rice plants, he does his own unique way of planting. He puts his blood into growing the roots healthily and strongly. He strives day and night to make his original organic rice through his exploration over a long period of time.

Mr. Tamura explains the growth of rice.
Mr. Tamura explains the growth of rice.

The bases for Mr. Tamura's rice production are "No agrichemicals all the way from the stage of raising seedling", "No herbicide at all" and "Homemade complete mature compost based on rice bran, rice husk, plant residue, etc.".

Mr. Tamura’s aim of making rice is to create "really healthy and vigorous rice". He is working toward organic cultivation with full of love and passion for rice and is aiming for further height.

Mr. Tamura's rice is exactly delicious rice filled with great natural grace and vitality having good gloss and healthy beauty. We would like to call his rice "the orthodoxy of Japanese rice".

Amazake is a very excellent fermented food produced with "koji" that is said to be "the national fungus" in Japan. Although flavorings such as miso and soy sauce are famous overseas as fermented foods produced with "koji", amazake has been loved and eaten as a healthy food with excellent nutritional value from ancient times.

The method of production of Japanese miso and soy sauce with the koji which exist naturally in those home facilities for fermentation used to be a technology that was cultivated as it was common for a long time, but now koji is usually purchased from seed koji sellers for stable production, and this traditional technology is lost.

Marukawa Miso has been in charge of production of Isehikari Amazake according to our request, and this company was established 100 years ago. From their desire to naturally make old-fashioned miso rich in personality as usual, they have been carrying out production of miso with "koji naturally living in the home facility for fermentation", which are seed koji being gathered from the inside of their facilities for miso fermentation.

Nowadays, Marukawa Miso is the only company that keeps this traditional technology in Japan. Four kinds of koji fungus living permanently in their facilities for miso fermentation bring very good odors when being made into koji and the energy of fermentation is different.

Isehikari "koji" with wonderful power
Isehikari "koji" with wonderful power

Isehikari Amazake is fermented and produced carefully with this precious koji being gathered from their own home facility for fermentation, and therefore this is very rare "koji" food made from organic and unpolished Isehikari rice, which is sweet with very deep taste.

 As the diverse substances important for maintaining the body are included with perfect combination in amazake, it is called "drinking drip infusion". The substances included in amazake are vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, folic acid, dietary fiber, silica, cysteine, glucose and abundant essential amino acids such as arginine.

While "koji" is doing fermentation action, it produces a large amount of enzyme. Eating amazake results in supplementing abundant enzymes into the body and the metabolism in the body becomes active. It is told by many people that the constipation has been improved, which can be said as the result of synergistic effects of oligosaccharide and dietary fiber.

In addition, amazake contains a lot of essential amino acids and kojic acid naturally produced, and if amazake is eaten every day, the texture of your skin is beautifully conditioned, and the improvement of dry skin and natural whitening effect can be expected.

Amazake has such wonderful effects for beauty, health and improvement of the intestinal environment.

And moreover since the precious agrichemical-free Isehikari rice hard to lie on the stomach is used as raw material, the fermented food, Isehikari Amazake has very light and gentle touch in the mouth when eating although it is made from unpolished rice.

From people who love Isehikari Amazake and continue to eat an appropriate amount every day, we have received a lot of delightful comments that they realize natural beauty and health, and effects on natural diet and detox besides.

We are supremely committed to the quality of the raw material of Isehikari rice with agrichemical-free organic cultivation and the fermentation with "koji naturally living in the home facility for fermentation", we believe that Isehikari Amazake nurses beauty and health of everyone who wishes the beauty brightening naturally.

Reviews from people who enjoyed Isehikari Amazake
(Please use automatic translation at the bottom of the page.)

We are trying to expand and grow more dramatically planning, research and development of original products. We want to produce, one after another, great products of high vibration, which will raise the existence state of us, human beings further to joy of life and great happiness.

Two prototypes of the premium version of Isehikari Amazake, "Isehikari Amazake Series" have been already completed at the present moment. Those prototypes are the products in which some more materials to be further useful for beauty, health and harmony are added to Isehikari Amazake.

One is "Bara Hime" in which the edible rose powder of extremely high quality and of agrichemical-free cultivation made in Okuizumo, Shimane prefecture, Japan and carefully selected organic plants is compounded, which gently works for beauty and health of the heart and the body.

The other is "Genki Seikatsu" in which the wild mugwort and a lot of organic medicinal plants and the weathered shell calcium of about 20 million years ago to be taken in Yakumo district, Hokkaido prefecture, Japan(the material for health with great potential including the ancient Somatido), which greatly contributes to health and harmony of the body.

Currently, we, the members of Unity House Project continue tasting these prototypes of the "Isehikari Amazake Series", and we are just realizing the various delightful effects.

Shortly, in this "Isehikari Amazake Series", the prototype of "Amaterasu Premium" will also be completed. This premium product will be named after the most supreme god in Japan, "Amaterasu Omikami".

As others products, we are planning and developing the natural foods using Isehikari rice, natural medicinal herbs, wild grasses, flowers, etc., the delicious sweets to nurse beauty and health, the beverages to help detoxify the body and clear the mind, and the skin care products with high vibration made of the grace of plants to help open the door of heart.

Through embodiment of these original products that enhance our existence state and help integrate and harmonize our heart, body and spirit, we would like to create the circulation of abundant love of the earth, human beings and nature.

We would also like to operate a natural farm where we will grow the plants that should play the lead in the creation and production of our original products and where we will cultivate the plants with the cutting-edge natural technology and our heart of love and gratitude. At the same time, we would like to self-build with our friends the place to become the office, manufacturing workshop, shop and meeting room. This is the place where we will make and sell natural foods to be helpful for beauty, health and harmony, and also where we will hold seminars, workshops, interchange meeting, study sessions and so on, toward realization of Unity House in the near future.

Unity House is "Everyone's house where our heart, mind, body, soul and spirit are unified and harmonized" and the house where are fusing the organic cafe surrounded by a rich natural environment and organic flower and herb garden, the lifestyle shop of organic food, clothing and shelter including natural foods, the comfortable seminar room with scent of natural wood the meeting room floored with Japanese-style tatami to raise people's consciousness and existence state and the facilities to heal and harmonize people's minds and bodies and natural body care, which is a place like an earthly heaven.

Through this blissful creation project filled with love, beauty, health and abundance, we sincerely hope to create a good place like heaven on earth, on this earth and this world.

Unity House Japan is its first step.

And, we sincerely hope that we will awake ourselves to the real self as a creator and that such earthly heaven will grow all around the world in the future ahead.

By harmonizing everyone's own heart, body and spirit and living filled with heartfelt joy and happiness while fully receiving the love energy of the source of the universe, the world shall become a place full of peace and warm happiness, and the earth shall realize the further evolution and shall eventually become a incomparably beautiful star of love with light shining.

To all of our dearly beloved but also soul friends on the earth,
Let's enjoy the heart-warming, exciting journey to create the new earth of love, while tasting and loving the blissful superfood that will enhance our existence state ! !

Risks and challenges

As you can understand by reading the texts so far, it is not easy to produce "Isehikari Amazake" with Japan's best quality, made from the rare organic Isehikari rice as raw material. However, this product is what we have succeeded in producing through the actual process. Therefore, we believe that the environment for shipping worldwide is in place.

However, it is a fact that there will be risks such as difficulty to deliver the product as promised time depending on factors such as the number of orders becoming very large since the organic Isekari rice as raw material is a product of nature and the production of "Isehikari Amazake" is also based on a time-consuming production method.

We would appreciate your understanding that there is a possibility of a delay until the product reaches you at hand due to the total quantity to be produced, the circumstances of the producer, the factory schedule and so on, although we will make every effort at delivering the product.

What we can definitely promise is that we will never compromise on quality of the product no matter how many quantities of the product we will ship! It is because we have love and appreciation toward our products and everybody involved is a great partner who always does its best.
