This product is made from rare, naturally brewed soy sauce that enhances the flavor of ingredients, tones the taste, and eliminates odors. No spices or chemical seasonings are used, which would otherwise lock in the flavor of the sauce. We encourage you to make your own original sauce by adding fresh ginger and garlic.

Founded in 1832 as a soy sauce brewer, Aritaya celebrated its 190th anniversary in 2022. Since its founding, the company has stubbornly maintained the production of "naturally brewed soy sauce," which is fermented and matured solely by the power of natural indigenous bacteria (kura-attached yeast). Using only domestic soybeans, wheat, and salt, and fermenting and maturing for at least two years in a stone storehouse (earthenware brewery) that has been in use for more than 150 years, the company continues to produce "Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce (1-stage preparation)" and "Naturally Double-Brewed Soy Sauce (2-stage preparation, 3-year brewing)" with the natural brewing method (production is estimated at 1%), which is already rare in Japan.
