This soy sauce brewery was founded in 1867, and carries on with traditional products while also developing new ones in-step with the modern day. All are crafted with the plentiful, pure waters of Yuzawa using techniques passed on over generations. The fine reputation of the Yamamo brand has expanded worldwide in recent years.
Visitors can take a tour of the brewery, the garden and the storehouse. Tour-goers praise it for offering a close-up look at the hands-on work of artisans, and the remodeled storehouse contains a gallery exhibiting works of art relating to the local area’s history and culture. You’ll also find a popular café serving gelato flavored with miso and soy sauce, as well as the factory shop selling miso, soy sauce and other goods for daily use. Even a brief stop at the storehouse alone offers visitors a chance to see and learn about the enterprise and taste its creations.
