大通りに湯浅醤油の工場・店舗があり試飲の種類も多彩でよかったが、もう一軒老舗の店があるというので、角長さんへも行った。資料館の2階へ行くと動画で製法や歴史の説明が聞ける。その上説明の補足を館内の物知りおばさんがタイムリーに入れてくれるので、なるほどそうか、とよく分かった。白板に原料の大豆と麦の比率がいろいろ書かれていたので、何なのかと質問すると、待ったましたとばかりに、醤油の原理について詳しく教え...

          Wakayama prefecture unites pilgrims, food lovers, and culture buffs in a tranquil corner of Japan at the base of the Kii Peninsula. The setting for many a Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail, Wakayama invites those in search of spirituality from one side of the prefecture to the other, from the 100-plus Buddhist temples of the sacred Mount Koya in the west to the inspiring temples of the Kumano Sanzan set among breathtaking nature in the east. Once the grueling hike is complete, make a beeline for Wakayama city to savor some of the country’s most delicious ramen noodles.
