About the product

Fragrant, soup stock-esque mentsuyu. This mentsuyu is made using awase-dashi soup stock accented with fish sauce. The soup stock uses rishiri kombu seaweed and makombu seaweed from Sakhalin and honkarebushi bonito and ara-honbushi bonito from Yaizu as its base, and the fish sauce is made using sardines.

This mentsuyu is made without using mirin or other ingredients containing alcohol so as not to obstruct the fragrance of the bonito or the kombu seaweed.

About the ingredients: The use of rishiri kombu seaweed and makombu seaweed from Sakhalin result in a high-quality product with fragrance and umami. Honkarebushi bonito has a rich fragrance, and ara-honbushi bonito has strong umami. The honkarebushi bonito has been smoked for about 2 weeks, and has had mold applied to it 4 times. It is a top-quality product that takes 3 to 6 months to make. The ara-honbushi bonito has been smoked, and dried for 6 to 20 hours.
