◆What is 錦爽(KINSOU)??◆

・The chicken was named with a "beautiful and refreshing" image in mind. So they called it 錦爽 (kinsou) . 錦(kin) – fine clothes, 爽(sou) - refreshing

・Processing is done at a designated factory.

・The chicken is carefully taken apart by hand and processed by trained craftsmen.

・Wood vinegar is added to the special feed.

◆What makes Kinso-dori so special?◆

・Reliable and safe product from Aichi Prefecture. The brand has established proper traceability (farm identification system), and the chicken is "fresh, safe and delicious".
・The chicken is given a sufficient amount of exercise from free-range feeding, so their fat content is low.
・The supplier used to run a feed processing company. As such, the are particular about their feed.
・From about 14 days before shipment, the animals have been raised on antibiotic-free and drug-free feed.

・The chicken is handled and processed by trained craftsmen, so the umami rarely escapes during processing.

  • This Aiichi Bird
    Gender: Male
    Age: Over 60
    My wife and I were impressed with the flavor of this chicken. We steam-cooked this bird for an hour and it was very, very tasty. I was used to the frozen US chickens we sometimes got and also the frozen birds I bought at the Shotengai. This chicken is waaaay better.
  • Tender chicken
    Gender: Female
    We had a wonderful roasted chicken dinner last night with this gorgeous bird. The meat was succulent and flavorful, and we’ll definitely buy it again.
  • Beautiful Bird
    This is a wonderful roaster; the size is enough to satisfy a hungry family with leftovers for pies or soups the next day. Tender and succulent!
  • Winner winner chicken dinner
    Gender: Male
    We had this for our Christmas dinner this year and were delighted. Succulent and tasty. A 2.2kg bird was more than enough for dinner and seconds.
  • Delicious
    I often order this chicken, and no part of it goes to waste. Roast, leftovers, stock - the flavour of everything made with it is excellent. The meat has good flavour and texture. Really happy to have been able to find a decent free range bird.
  • Flavorful, moist, tender meat. Excellent value for money,
    I am totally spoiled. I've bought this bird at least 4 times and have never been disappointed. The larger the chicken the better the bone/waste to meat ratio. These birds, at 2 kg (about 4.4 lbs), are the most economical and have the best taste -- they're about ¥170/100 grams -- totally in line with what you'd pay for an inferior product in the local stores. I'm hard-pressed to buy chicken at the local stores anymore. The bird will easily feed 6 people with sides, or you'll have chicken salad or sandwiches the next day. I brine mine in a salted water bath overnight then baked it at 180°C for about an hour. It's tender, juicy, and delicious. I like them so much I'm considering ordering two or more and cutting them up myself. If you're baking the whole bird, try The Meat Guy's stuffing mix --- Mmmmm, yum! But, buy this bird! You will not regret it.
  • Best bird
    This is the real deal. Not a hint of chemical taste like regular supermarket chicken. Cooked with 2 lemon halves sprinkled with herbs for a great tang to the meat.
  • Terrific!
    Possibly the best chicken I've had in Japan. Big, healthy, fairly low fat but juicy.
    Cooked it for about two hours on low heat with just salt and a bit of garlic powder, with a genmai rice, onion, garlic and herb stuffing. Not dry at all.
    Delicious, and enough left over for a couple of lunches!
  • Good volume
    It is very nice to have access to whole chickens! Ours was very nice, a bit dry or not as juicy, but that may have been my fault. Family of 3 enjoyed it with leftovers for sandwiches the next day. I will get one again. I might try the other whole chicken offered through this site to compare. But overall, very recommended.
  • The best!
    Not cheap but the best chicken out there!
  • 日常的に使いたい!

    Very juicy ! Great taste! Its great to know its a free range chook fed by locally grown japanese grains.
  • -
    I love roast chicken! My Mom use to roast one once a week when I was kid. I try and do one once a month. The crisp skin is wonderful as is the breast meat and the wings!!! OH SO DELISH! Then we take the carcass and simmer it in pot with onion, carrots, and celery and make SUPER stock that we freeze and use for other recipes. I rarely have to buy grocery store broth/stock! WIN WIN!
