 The Rusks

We worked with two amazing local Japanese snack companies to bring you some of the best rusks in Japan.

Ryushodo 隆勝堂

Ryushodo Japanese snacks

Founded in 1924, Ryushodo is located in the tea growing region of Yame, Fukuoka. They started off making green tea flavored and traditional wagashi snacks. They became known for their dedication to using only the best local ingredients. Ryushodo is still very popular and has been passed down through the family for over 90 years.

Ryushodo’s rusks are made with the finest, locally sourced wheat and butter. The uniquely mellow matcha flavor is made possible by tea leaves picked by neighboring farms.

Cybele シベール

Japanese snacks rusks

Located deep within the mountains of Yamagata, the Cybele wheat workshop has continued to make some of the highest quality snacks in Japan for over 20 years. Cybele was founded with the belief that the highest quality snacks can only be made by hand. Even now, the artisans take pride in their work and hand-make all of their rusks.

While rusks from other companies in Japan are made from regular baguettes, Cybele takes a different approach and makes special baguettes specifically for rusks.
