A Fresno landmark. Confectioner Kogetsu - Do has survived in the same location it has occupied for 99 Years. Sugimatsu Ikeda and his wife Sakino started the business in 1915 and were able to purchase this building on "F" Street in 1920. With the outbreak of World War II, they were sent to an internment camp in Arkansas. Ikeda worked out a deal with a Chinese family to take over the shop while the family endured the camp. After 2 years of confinement, Ikeda reopened Kogetsu-Do in 1944. Sons Roy and Masao carried on the family business specializing in Mochi. This Japanese business has been a cornerstone of the Fresno community and has passed from generation to generation now being run by Ikeda's Granddaughter Lynn Ikeda, continuing on with the family recipe. This confectioner remains a staple for the Asian community of Fresno's Chinatown district.
