    Tochigi Pref. Nikkoushi Imaichi 487
    A 10 minute walk from Imaichi Station on the JR Nikko Line. This miso and soy sauce producer and shop has been operating since the Edo period 400 years ago, its white walls and gabled roof standing out against its surroundings. Among other things, here you can buy Japanese leek and other vegetables pickled in tamari, a rich soy sauce produced as a byproduct when making miso; Uwasawa Umetaro Shoten releases a fresh batch of these “tamari-zuke” pickles each morning from its storehouse. The shop area’s showcases are lined with products, while the tasting area is also well-stocked, ensuring you can take your time sampling products to choose your favorites for purchase. The most popular item on offer is the pickled Japanese leek, which is carefully prepared without cooking the leek to ensure maximum flavor and texture.

    I love Japanese pickles so we made sure to stop while we were in Nikko. This manufacturer has been in business for more than 400 years. We tried a few things and bought a few things. There’s a sake...

    "This sake brewery uses water from the Sake no Izumi, which has a nearly-religious following amongst sake connoisseurs thanks to its reputation for producing great sake. Known for its association with legends about the Buddhist monk Kukai, the aptly-named ""spring of sake"" is counted amongst the Three Miraculous Waters of Nikko. The brewery also pays great attention to the rice and yeast it uses. It is also notable for its use of the Sase-style straining, a time-consuming technique that forgoes the use of presses but ensures that the flavor of the rice remains in the sake. The brewery also offers tours to groups of up to 30. Large groups should call ahead of time."

    Short walk from the Nikko train station we arrived at Katayama Shuzo. We were greeted by the owner and his wife. The owner took us on a tour (no shoes), due to our timing the sake brewing season was...
