Soy sauce

Nowadays, soy sauce is generally manufactured by the quick method for which mash (moromi) is heated for aging. However, Igagoe’s naturally-brewed soy sauce is a fine product using the traditional method for which it is slowly fermented and aged for about 300 days in the seasonal heat and cold. Please enjoy “smooth” and “rich” soy sauce that is naturally brewed with “a lot of work” and “time”.

Miso

Miso

The Origin of Tamamiso

Since the old time, in November when soy beans are harvested, the families in Iga soaked the harvested soy beans in the water, steamed them well and made “Misotama” weighing about 1 kg, and hanged with a rope over Kamado, the Japanese-style oven, and hanged it until next April in order to breed natural yeast.
It will be smoked over a kamado oven for about half a year and Koji mold is multiplied, and then Tamamiso are crushed and done in the salted water. This will finish the making of delicious “Tamamiso” that is naturally brewed with 100% Koji mold.
“Tamamiso”, whose taste has been handed down now, is made in each family’s own method by adding Koji malt to each of the Japanese soy beans and rice. If we take time to brew it naturally in the seasonal heat and cold in Iga, Koji malt does all the job in the “natural” way that people are not able to do.
