Soy sauce

Hi, this is Shinjuku Business Garden.

These days I feel this hot & muggy summer is finally getting over.
And autumn is just around the corner!

Today, I would like to introduce you Japanese traditional soy sauce.
This storehouse was established in 1834 and has history of making soy sauce over 160 years.
They have varieties of soy sauce and pickles that perfect for typical Japanese dishes.

I found this storehouse in Chiba when driving with my friends.
Soy sauce is used for many kinds of Japanese dishes, and there is a special one especially made for sashimi.
Personally I don’t eat raw fish though I can tell you it’s very good.
It tastes little more sweet than usual soy sauce.

This is the huge wooden barrel they use for making soy sauce.
I could smell soy sauce everywhere around it even it stays outside of the storehouse.
This barrel must have used for a long time.

You can find soy sauce in any supermarket, but it’s good to try one of these once in a while.
One thing that you should be careful about is that soy sauce contains lots of sodium.
