Takumi AKA Shinshu Miso (Red Miso)

Versatile Miso with Elegance and Distinctive Presence

This miso combines sophistication with a strong and unmistakable flavor.
It's perfect for miso soup, but it also works wonders as a marinade for meats and fish, effectively eliminating any unwanted odors.
It's a versatile ingredient that can enhance a wide range of dishes, from Japanese, Western, to Chinese cuisine and even desserts.

They meticulously peel soybean skins to eliminate impurities.
By incorporating soybean koji in the fermentation process, the result is a miso with a robust and deep flavor profile.

Red Miso vs. White Miso

Red miso has a longer aging period and a higher salt concentration, resulting in a richer taste with stronger flavor.
When using these miso varieties in your cooking, selecting the appropriate one based on the dish will further enhance its deliciousness! 

What makes them special?

The distinctive feature of their miso making is undoubtedly its traditional handcrafted rice koji, made using the age-old method of "Murobuta" or wooden box fermentation.
This process involves meticulously monitoring temperature and changes by hand.
They emphasize, "Starting with the creation of good koji is essential; otherwise, the resulting miso, soy sauce, and amazake won't turn out well."

They use this traditional rice koji in combination with high-quality domestic rice, domestically sourced soybeans, and natural salt, allowing it to mature for over a year in their cellar using natural fermentation techniques.
The resulting miso has a remarkable flavor and has won numerous awards at miso tasting competitions in Nagano Prefecture and throughout Japan.

Crafting Miso with a Variety of Small Batches

They specialize in producing and selling a diverse range of miso varieties, with particular attention to their standout product, "Shinshu Sommelier Miso," available in small quantities typically sold in sets.
This concept was born from the idea that, much like the concept of "marriage" in the world of wine, there could be complementary pairings of miso that enhance each other depending on personal preferences and the dishes they accompany.
Their handcrafted koji can accommodate small batches, allowing them to strike a harmonious balance between traditional techniques and modern needs in the production and sale of fermented foods.
This flexibility is one of the captivating aspects of Kojiya Moto-Fuji Brewery.
