Natural spring water / What is Shinano Yusui?

  1. "Natural spring water” with high rarity value

    The Japanese Northern Alps range is often called "the roof of Japan." A series of 3000m-high mountain ranges where abundant snowfall is naturally filtered over the years passing through volcanic rocks such as basalt, granite and sand. This creates a number of famous springs, making this region one of the best water sources in Japan. Shinano Yusui's raw water is from one of such springs.

    From the mountainside of the Japanese Northern Alps, the “Yazawa water source,” at an elevation of 1220m, gives birth to pure 100% certifiable “Natural Spring Water.” Because it is not heat-treated, the undisturbed taste of Mother Nature is delivered to you. The “Natural Spring Water Certificate” has been issued by the Mayor of the water source region.


  2. “Ultra-soft water” is perfect for baby's powder milk and Japanese rice

    Japanese are more accustomed to ultra-soft water of hardness level 16, and Shinano Yusui contains an ideal balance of natural minerals with a refreshing and smooth taste. People who have tasted the water are saying how delicious it is!
    We have received high praise from households especially from families with babies. Because the infant's kidneys are sensitive, it has been said that an excess of mineral intake is stressful for the baby's body and may lead to an upset stomach or cause fever. Ultra-soft water is perfect for making baby's powder milk.

    In addition, the products are bottled under strict hygiene management guaranteed by ISO22000 and FSSC 22000 certifications (the first in Japan's home-delivery water business), together with stringent monthly inspections for radioactive substances by an institution registered by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare in Japan, it is safe for babies and expectant mothers to drink.

    The water is also excellent for cooking Japanese rice, giving rice a delicious shine and tenderness, as well as bringing out its original stickiness and flavour (when cooked with tap water, there is a distinct tap-water smell and the hard water gives it a dry texture). When using Shinano Yusui making soup stock in Japanese cuisine, the flavours of the individual ingredients are brought out. It is also recommended for making coffee, tea or with whisky.


  3. ”Fine quality” and yet “amazing per litre unit price”

    This natural spring water with a high rarity value and the fully automated state-of-the-art facility together with ISO22000 and FSSC22000 certified hygiene management system makes Shinano Yusui such a secure, safe and delicious water of “top quality.”

    With strong conviction to “deliver the best products at the most fair price,” we were able to make this per litre unit price possible by utilizing the storage space and delivery network of SIAM CITY MART Co.,Ltd. and by valuing promotion through word of mouth to lower overall costs. SIAM CITY MART Co.,Ltd.distributes Japonica rice, well-known as the brand of “Komeya no Kome”, broadly delivers it to households and sells it to famous restaurants etc.
