<p>The nuts of the Japanese horse chestnut tree (<i>Aesculus turbinata</i> Blume) have long been a traditional ingredient of rice cakes in mountainous regions of Japan.

Telephone interviews with employees at 964 stations clarified that horse chestnut products, such as rice cakes, rice crackers and fried cookies were sold in about one-quarter stations. The fresh horse chestnut rice cakes were mainly made by individual producers and producer cooperatives. The other preserved products were mostly produced by private companies. We also found that the horse chestnuts for the products were either locally gathered or purchased from other regions through procurement networks.</p>
