The red grape variety is an interspecific new variety between Centennial x Ishihara Wase. Synonyms are Ju Feng, Kioho, Kyohou. It contains genes from Vitis vinifera and Vitis labrusca. The hybrid was crossed in 1935 in Japan by the breeder Yasushi Ohinoue. It was a crossing partner in the new varieties Jifeng and Pione. The vine is sensitive to frost (max. minus 10 °Celsius) and is therefore only suitable for greenhouses or conservatories. The berries have a foxtone. The variety is mainly used as table grape. It is grown in Japan (62 ha), South Korea (2,700 ha) and on Taiwan. In 2016, a total of 2,762 hectares of vineyards were designated (Kym Anderson).
