Core Business

Recreate landscapes in edible forms (Design, production and sales)

Geogashi, our innovative concept of edible Earth, serves not only as souvenir for tourists but also as a marketing tool for local people to promote their towns and cities. For future visitors, it helps them get inspired and prepared.

Organise field trips

SWe organize tours to visit geosites with our Geogashi products in our hands. After comparing the actual landscape and our recreation, your eyes may be tricked under Geogashi magic and the actual landscape will start to look tasty! At the end of the trip, visitors will be more curious about the geological history of the landscape they have just seen.

Traveling workshops

We share our methods of how to 'rejuvenate' Japanese landscapes, in other words, how to generate people's interest and aspiration in landscapes, encouraging them to visit the sites.

Creator and founder

I, Michiko Suzuki, was always attracted to nature. Perhaps that was because I was brought up in the mountainous area. One day, I had a Eureka moment; I suddenly realised that a landscape is a mirror of who we are. The awe feeling urged me to share my discovery.

I am sure some of the readers, in their childhood, were on a hunt of beautiful rocks and pebbles and then got tempted to put a stone in their mouths. It somehow looked edible and delicious, but only to find that it was just another stone. If you share a similar experience, then you will understand my logical shift from 'tasty stone' to 'tasty geological landscape'. Let me remind you. The idea isn’t new. Many Japanese traditional sweets recreate seasonal landscape. The way how we express our appreciation towards the nature is deeply imbedded in our culture that we feel natural about depicting landscapes in edible forms.

However, it was not as easy as it sounds. To appreciate geographical landscape, it requires some knowledge. That was how my idea for recreation of geographical landscapes came about. If visitors can travel to geosites with a sample image and small guide, then it helps visitors understand the landscape deeper. When the sample is edible, I am sure it makes a sense so 'tastefully'.

I hope you are now tempted to get geogashi. Once you have got it, you are ready to explore the Earth!

Let's go out with a geo-confectioner!
