Shoyu is Japanese word for soy sauce, which is a dark brown liquid made from soybeans that have undergone a fermentation process.

The culture starter/yeast in the shoyu is still alive because it didn't undergo heating process.

It is a high quality, organic, chemical-free shoyu that is made with traditional method using cedar barrels.

Message from The Maker of
YAMAHISA Organic Traditional Shoyu

Shōdoshima (Shōdo Island) is a famous scenic spot in the Seto Inland Sea, which is known for its beauty.

Shōdoshima has been making shoyu in its Utsumi-cho region for about 400 years, and Yamahisa has consistently pursued a genuine taste with its own stance and commited traditional process.

The history and tradition that has continued to seek "completion of good products with few top eminences" which cannot be achieved by national manufacturers of mass production, under the management completeness of "being consumers before being producer."
It is our pride.

Above all, the soybeans and wheat we are using as ingredients are different.

Commitment to use domestic raw materials, which getting fewer nowadays, chemical pesticides and chemical fertilizers are not used at all, also have organic JAS (Japanese Agricultural Standards) certification, made with a careful manufacturing method—we are making every effort to create a healthy taste.

It's also the same for salt, we only use the naturally sun-dried raw salt.

Whole soybeans containing oil bring redness to the color of soy sauce and raw salt gives subtle sweetness to the flavor of shoyu. It can be said that these are the special features of Yamahisa's shoyu.

There is also the difference in how it takes time and effort to process.

In ordinary shoyu making, it usually takes 4 to 6 months, but in Yamahisa it is not uncommon to spend 2 years on fermenting.

About this manufacturing method, the technical adviser (former factory manager) who has 50 years of experience in this area, fully demonstrated their experiences and sights, a self-made place just for craftsmanship.

We're also looking forward to these polished skill and mind being passed on to the younger generations.

A long-lasting, majestic storehouse where if you just take one step into it you can immediately smell the scent of shoyu in the air.
There is a nostalgic and warm original scenery of traditional shoyu making.

In a world where everything is replaced with new things, we must return to nature's providence once more and look closely at what should be bring up to the next generation.
