[The culture of Hatcho Miso]

See, learn and taste the traditional flavor of Okazaki

"Hatcho Miso" is one of the brands of "soybean miso" with rich and savory flavor which has a history of 400 years from the beginning of the Edo period. "Hatcho" was named after Hatcho-cho, located approx. 870m (8-cho in a Japanese unit of length) west of Okazaki Castle. Even today, two breweries located on either side of the Old Tokaido, Kakukyu and Maruya, continue to produce miso slowly over two summers and two winters and tours are available for visitors. Why don't you see the food culture that Okazaki boosts with your own eyes?
