Organic production pioneer in Japan
For more than a century, Yamaki Jozo has been using traditional artisanal production methods to create soy sauce and miso. Their workshops are located in the hills overlooking the city of Saitama in northern Japan. In Japan, only a few producers make shoyu soy sauce only with ingredients grown in Japan and using traditional methods. Japanese soy is high in protein, less fat, sweet after steaming.
Japan has four well-defined seasons: spring, summer (high temperature and humidity), autumn and winter (low temperature). Taking advantage of these characteristic seasons. Particularly low temperatures in winter and high temperatures in the summer (with very high humidity) are ideal conditions for producing quality soy sauce, a pillar of Japanese cuisine, as well as a high quality miso.
