  • Minamigura Shoten
    Aichi Chita-gun Taketoyocho Satonaka 58

The brewery's fresh Sato no Aji miso, which is packaged straight from the cask without additional aging, comes in two types - one in which the beans have been mashed to a smooth consistency, and one with the pieces of soybean still intact for a chunky texture. The luxurious Tsuresoi miso, which is made exclusively with the small amount of highly flavorful miso found at the bottom of the cask, is also recommended.

Aichi Areas


Aichi is a prefecture of great natural beauty with Nagoya city at its heart, a busy hub home to a labyrinth of underground shops and the 17th-century Nagoya Castle. Castles are easy to find in this history-rich prefecture, but the highlight for history buffs has to be the Museum Meiji-mura, where preserved buildings from the turn of the 20th century are displayed in all their grandeur in an outdoor museum.
