A must-see for all foodies and lovers of Japanese traditional cuisine!
Miso paste is a salty, savory and wondrously delicious product of natural fermentation that is filled with complex flavors. Although miso is mostly recognized for its use in soup, by the time you’re finished with the brewery tour, miso lunch, and our tour-included free miso souvenirs, you’ll soon discover that there are many more possibilities when it comes to cuisine with miso!
One thing is for sure: you’ll never want to go back to the mass-produced variety ever again once you have tasted the real thing!
Local Miso Brewery Tour
As one of the few traditional miso paste makers remaining in Japan, this local miso brewery is a must-see for anyone interested in Japanese food and culinary traditions. When you take a Japanese miso brewery tour, you will first be greeted by rows of 100 year old cedar fermenting barrels. Then one of the brewery’s own workers will swiftly guide you through the entire miso-making process and demonstrate how they create the astonishingly vast varieties of miso that can be found in Japan.
Local Miso Lunch
After the tour, enjoy the brewery’s delicious miso lunch, loaded with only the best miso-inspired dishes, like miso rice balls, miso pickles, and tonjiru (pork miso soup). Be sure to try samples of both the 1-year and the 3-year miso pastes. Free samples of many other products are also available in the gift shop.
Free Miso Souvenirs at home
Before you leave, treat yourself to some of the best miso items from the gift shop, with our free tour-included products! They make great souvenirs. You can even try preparing them at home, using the tips you’ve just learned from your local guide!
And, lastly, don’t miss some of the exclusive premium products available in the gift shop, especially the miso soft-serve ice cream!
