Marukin Soy Sauce Museum (マルキン醤油記念館)


Memorial Hall

This museum was constructed in 1987 to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the founding of Marukin Shoyu. The gassho-zukuri (a traditional style of Japanese architecture with a steep thatched roof) building has been designated as a National Registered Tangible Cultural Property. Inside the museum are panels that introduce the soy sauce manufacturing process and displays of tools that were actually used in the production of soy sauce since the company was founded. Visitors can try soy sauce soft cream in the adjacent production building and this unique flavor can only be had here. Tours of the press factory that is currently still in use are also possible.

Review of Marukin Soysouce Memorial

Reviewed:2018/05/15 Interesting to see how soy sauce was made
We visited here with a group of 15 and found it very interesting to see how soy sauce was made in the old days. We did not realise what a long and labour intensive process it was. The small shop on...

There is really not much here, besides showing how soya sauce is made. Artefacts are laid out in a biggish hall, with some English signs.

Not much to see but guess it may be interesting to those with zero knowledge of soy sauce. Tried the soy sauce ice-cream but it only tasted like ice-cream.

          Kagawa Areas


          Japan's smallest prefecture, Kagawa, may take up just a small corner of Shikoku, but it has grown increasingly popular with the recognition of Naoshima, its "art island" in the Seto Inland Sea between Shikoku and Honshu. Just a stone's throw from the islands, mainland Kagawa's prefectural capital, Takamatsu, holds history in its castle ruins and its pride and joy, Ritsurin Garden, is known as one of the country's best gardens.
