The History of BANKAKU
The history of BANKAKU Co., Ltd. began when the founder, Kakujirou Ban, established operations.
The company name, BANKAKU, comes from the name of the founder, KAKU-jirou BAN.
BANKAKU with more than 120-years of history, held on to the motto, "What's more a shrimp cracker than BANKAKU?"
Kakujirou Ban improved on traditional recipes and created a new kind of shrimp cracker by baking them over charcoal fire.
In 1966, the shrimp crackers were named YUKARI ( which means ties and relationship ).
Since then, YUKARI have been widely given as gifts.
