San Jose Tofu to close

SAN JOSE — After 71 years and three generations, San Jose Tofu Co. — one of the last shops that make the soft bricks of soybean cakes by hand — is closing at the end of the month.

Owner Chester Nozaki, whose grandfather opened the shop just after World War II on Jackson Street in Japantown, says the physical work of lugging 40-pound buckets of soybeans into grinders and vats has taken its toll on him and his wife, Amy.
