This independent milk dairy producer can be found just across the Araki River. It's a much-loved local brand dating back to 1897, whose dairy cows are raised at the nearby Ayu-no-Se ranch, surrounded by Hida's abundant nature.
Bokuseisha is well-known for its Monaka-style ice cream offering using hand-baked wafers, which comes in a variety of flavors and can be picked up around Hida too. It goes without saying, but their fresh milk makes for great soft-serve ice cream too, but Bokuseisha sells a wide range of dairy products including cheeses and yogurt.
Milk from Bokuseisha is used to supply local Hida businesses—like at FabCafe with their canele—and their products are stocked nationwide.
Bokuseisha is an 8 minute walk from Hida-Furukawa Station, across the Araki River.
