|Japanese distilled spirit K gata kin||This is all-purpose mold, with a fast start and which easily produces koji, for either rice or barley.
The resulting liquor has a relatively mild taste.
|Mugi senyo kin||This mold grows well on barley with less density and was specifically selected for its ease in producing koji.
Since there is a higher enzyme production compared to K type mold, a higher alcohol yield can be expected.
Additionally, it has an aroma suitable for barley spirits is also produced.
|Soba Senyo Kin||A special characteristic of this mold is its ability to enhance the flavor of buckwheat.

(Black koji mold, yellow koji mold, combined strains)
|Awamori Kurokoji Kin||This starter mold starts fast, and progresses relatively gently. Acidity of the finished koji is very stable. A major feature of this mold is highly active enzymes, with a sweet mash.|
|Kikoji Kin For Shoshu||The enzymes in this selected strain are highly active, and bring out the fragrance of Japanese distilled spirits.
Combined use of enzymatic agents is recommended since the activity of acid-resistant enzymes is low.
|Yugo Kabu||This koji mold is made by cell fusion of yellow koji mold for sake and black koji mold for Japanese distilled spirits, and provides characteristics of both. Although acidity of the finished koji is low, the unique aroma that only yellow koji mold can produce is abundant.
