We have sold various cosmetics with excellent formulae, including rouges made of safflower, and they were loved by ladies from the inner palace of the Edo castle and the imperial court in Kyoto.

A hair oil for conditioning Japanese style hair. Made from an original recipe by soaking in fragrant wood and musk, it gained great popularity due to the lovely scent.

Meiji Period (1868 - 1912)

By using camellia oil as the raw material, in addition to its lovely fragrance, it was well received due to its effects that help with hair growth and unruly hair.

Heisei Perios

Launched YANAGIYA Apricot Oil in 2008. It was well received, especially by young women, because of its refreshing feel.
