It will be soy sauce, miso, and then amazake.

There are two types of soy sauce, Kinari and Kinjirushi.
Kinari is a little thicker, and you can taste the flavor of the soybeans.
Kinjirushi is made by adding mirin to kinari, making it a little drier.
The price is a little higher than the commercial products, but it is definitely worth the price.
It’s irresistible when used with sashimi!
Pour it over tamagokake rice and it turns into a luxury item! No, I’m not kidding, it really is!
By the way, the owner’s recommended way to enjoy it is to pour it over potato salad.

There are three types of miso: Kamimiso, Tokusen-miso, and Ginjo-miso.
They are distinguished by the ratio of rice koji to soybeans, with Kami-miso having less rice koji and Ginjo-miso having more.
The more rice koji added, the sweeter the taste, with Kami-miso having a medium-dry taste, Tokusen-miso a medium-sweet taste, and Ginjo-miso a sweet taste.
Of the three, the Tokusen Miso (medium sweet), which has the middle ratio of rice koji, is the most popular.


It is located near the Tateshina Town Hall, along Route 40 (old Nakasendo Road).
