Built on aging
until now and in the future.
In 1873, we started brewing soy sauce in Kosudo, Akiha-ku, Niigata City.
We continue to make soy sauce by squeezing Moromi (sake mash) prepared from Shoyu-koji (a fermented mixture of soy sauce and koji rice spore) using a traditional technique that has been passed down since our establishment.
Currently, we are utilizing the technology we have cultivated over many years of soy sauce brewing to produce many delicacies that go well with rice and sake.
Even for delicacy products, the aging process is essential.
For example, it requires great fermentation skills when it comes to fermenting sake lees, which is the decisive factor for the flavor of our main product, “Kazunoko Wasabi (Herring roe & horseradish).”
As the ingredients need to mature to increase the depth of taste, we have improved our technology and knowledge over a long period of time, continuing to make efforts to meet the needs of society at that time.
We will continue to develop products tailored to the needs of the times based on traditional techniques to support Japanese food culture and promote Niigata food, including rice and sake.
