Shopping Spots


Kurosawa Soy Sauce has been making soy sauce while preserving traditional methods since its founding in 1905. The brewery creates various products utilizing wooden barrels passed down for over 100 years, the natural yeast and lactic acid bacteria that live in the brewery, and capitalizing on years of experience. The popular Hishiogura (double-brewed soy sauce) is ideal for sashimi (sliced raw fish) or dipping sauce. Awazuke, an ingredient in pickled vegetables, can easily turn any vegetable into pickles. Their flavorful ponzu (Japanese seasoning made with citrus juice), mentsuyu (traditional soup ingredient used in noodle dishes), and yakiniku tare (Japanese barbeque sauce) are also popular products! Brewery tours are also possible through advanced reservations.

The shop and KURA CAFE utilize the warehouse space on the brewery grounds with desserts served at the cafe, enhancing the flavors in malted rice and soy sauce. The amazake shoyu soft serve, a soy sauce soft serve ice cream topped with amazake (non-alcoholic sweet sake) made from malted rice, is super popular. This soft-serve ice cream has a rich, caramel-like flavor that customers highly rate. Lunch featuring soy sauce and fermented products is available by advance reservation.
