Kinoko means Specialty Mushrooms in Japanese.

Japanese Mushrooms

Kinoko is pronounced: kee-noh-koh

Our 100% organic Hokto kinokos are grown in California and
offer great health benefits.

We engage in production and sales of four types of mushroom - Bunashimeji(Brown beech mushrooms), Bunapi®(White beech mushrooms), Eryngii mushrooms(King trumpet) and Maitake(Hen of the woods) - making the most of our highly sophisticated mushroom cultivation technology and under a comprehensive production and quality management setup. To ensure continued delivery of high-quality mushrooms to consumers, we also established and operate a specialized research center known as the Kinoko Research and Development Institute in Japan.

Hokto’s Kinokos are ready to be cooked right out of the bag.
Because they are 100% organic and cultivated in soil-free clean enviroments, they do not need to be washed or rinsed.
because they are not grown in soil and are agrichemical free!
