    Kyoto Kyotango-shi Mineyamacho Sugitani 300
    This soy sauce brewery has been using the same technique of slow fermenting and maturing soy sauce in wooden tubs since their founding in 1912. They manufacture and sell seasonings and processed goods including primarily miso and soy sauce as well as salad dressings. We particularly recommend their Jinzaemon dark soy sauce. It's made with local Tango soy beans, domestic wheat, and famous salt from the sea of Ako and uses the same old style natural fermenting and aging techniques that they've used since their first generation.

    Long beloved as a local delicacy the shibazuke pickled vegetables are an Ohara tradition that is now one of the three famous Kyoto pickles. Along with shibazuke this shop also makes and sells other pickled vegetables made with carefully selected seasonal vegetables as well as Kyoto Tsukudani (preserved foods boiled in sweet soy sauce). Their seasonal Fukinoto Miso is incredibly popular.

    I have thought that shibazuke, vegetables chopped and pickled in salt with red shiso, is made of cucumbers, but shibazuke in this shop is made of eggplants. Whatever it is made of, shibazuke in this...

Because of their careful bloodletting process their boar meat stands out for avoiding the strong smell that boar meat usually possesses. A lot of locals stop by to get the crucial ingredient for their boar meat hot-pots, a necessary staple during the Kyoto winters. The shop was founded in 1916 and is open for a limited period between November and March in accordance with the boar hunting season.

    This venerable tofu shop has been dedicated solely to craft of Kyoto-style tofu since it was established in 1897. Its name stems Toyokebime-no-kami, the god of food and the enshrined deity of the outer shrine of Ise Grand Shrine. The shop's diverse selection includes more than 15 varieties of tofu alone, including momen-dofu (firm tofu), which can be found in any Japanese kitchen, as well as their honyuzu-dofu (yuzu citrus tofu), goma-dofu (sesame tofu), aojiso-dofu (green shiso tofu), and kuromame-dofu (black soybean tofu). Because each variety has a different firmness, texture, and flavor, customers can enjoy finding the tofu that matches their tastes. The shop also sells sweets such as soy milk pudding and soymilk yogurt, namafu (raw wheat gluten), which can add flair to any dish, soy milk face soap made with 100% organic soy milk, and other products.

    A white walled storehouse with a classic Kyoto townhouse appearance. This soy sauce shop is easily marked by the large wooden signboard standing by the entrance. It's a long-standing store that has been making soy sauce with a focus on domestic ingredients and traditional tools and techniques ever since its establishment in 1879. Recommended is their Whole Soybean Twice Aged Soy Sauce in which soybeans and wheat are added to finished pure soy sauce and allowed to ferment a second time. Their two-year fermented soy sauce is perfect not just for fish or meat dishes but for any meal that you want to give a deeper flavor. Their products are sold in glass bottles to prevent a changing of flavor.

    We found extraordinary soy sauce at “Sawai Shoyu Honten” near the Imperial Palace in Kyoto. In this old house, surrounded by delicious aromas, we got a tasting session of 5 different preparations, so...

Ever since their founding in 1884 they've continued to make and sell delicious beans in the same location. Their flagship Ebisugawa Five Color Beans are a lucky charm created by the founder as they thought about Kyoto printed silk flowing in a clear stream. The colors represent the earth, with the green the trees, red the fire, yellow the ground, white the gold, and black (cinnamon brown) the water. It's a festive candy with the elegance of Kyoto made with fragrant beans and fine quality sugar allowing you to easily taste the sweetness.

    A long-standing shop that sells a secret blend of fragrant shichimi seven spice. They continue to sell the blend that they first started selling when they opened in the Nishiki Market where gourmet customers gather in 1878. Freshness is important to get the most flavor out of their blend of a number of chili peppers. Only enough shichimi seven spice is made to stock the store so as to impact the flavor as little as possible. Their Yuzu Citrus Shichimi is made with a healthy amount of domestic yuzu citrus and is perfect for hot pots and pickles so it's a common souvenir item.

    "This shop is the only maker and seller of yuba (tofu skins) in the Nishiki Market, which is known as ""the Kitchen of Kyoto."" Since its establishment in 1790, it has continued to make Kyo-yuba (Kyoto tofu skins) using only carefully selected domestic soybeans and water from a well right there in the Nishiki Market. You can taste the depth and rich flavor of the soybeans in their exquisitely flavorful yuba, which are made the old-fashioned way. The shop offers nama-yuba (raw tofu skins), which have a soft texture and are served with wasabi and soy sauce or with broth, as well as kan-yuba (dried tofu skins), which are allowed to dry naturally before being arranged into various shapes. Their yuba-chirimen, a preserved food made by simmering yuba together with dried young sardines of the finest grade and Kyoto soy sauce, goes great with a bowl of rice."

Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
