Their signature soy sauce Tsuru-bishio '鶴醤'
The method starts with fresh soy sauce aged 1-2 years, which is returned to the barrel, fortified with additional soybeans and wheat, and aged for another 2-3 years. Using additional ingredients, time, and nature’s power, the salt from the original aging process develops into incredible depth, aroma, and smoothness.

Contents: 500ml
Ingredients: Soya, wheat, salt

Why Simply Native chose?
Today, soy sauce production is increasingly carried out in plastic containers for greater operational efficiency, and the number of manufacturers making soy sauce in wooden barrel is on the decline.
However, soy sauce made in wooden barrel for many years tastes significantly amazing than that made in plastic containers.
This is because the lactic acid bacteria and yeast bacteria, which are essential for the production of fermented seasonings, work well.
We are grateful to be able to sell Yamaroku's soy sauce at Simply Native.
