Oikoji miso is our top-quality miso. Using carefully selected local ingredients, it is matured with Saishikomi (Extra koji) method which is quite rare in normal miso production. Only limited brewery tries this method. Saishikomi method adds extra koji in the middle of the maturing process. This extra koji makes it possible to produce rich aroma and balanced flavor compared to the basic quality miso. Furthermore, the use of wooden barrels that are more than 100 years old allows many microorganisms to promote fermentation, resulting in a complex and profound flavor. This miso is perfect to spice up not only Japanese cooking, but also as a dipping sauce for Western dishes and as a spice for baking.
