“ Yuasa food experience ”
I have an interest in traditional Japanese fermented foods and contacted Noriko via Triplelights for a visit to Yuasa, the home of Japanese soy sauce. We met at Yuasa train station and walked around town for the next five hours visiting two soy sauce makers, and a kinzanjimiso maker. Noriko had researched the tour thoroughly before I arrived, and was very professional, friendly and pleasant to be with throughout the tour. Soy sauce icecream with soy sauce topping was a surprise culinary highlight during the tour, as was wasabi kinzanjimiso. The spontaneous tour offered by a miso maker was most interesting to me, and the hands-on experience of making soy sauce at Yuasa Shoyu was a lot of fun. I'd also like to thank Noriko for suggesting the local specialty whitebait for lunch. Delicious. I encourage you to schedule a tour with Noriko in Wakayama prefecture.
