This product combines naturally fermented Shinshu miso aged for three years, brewed in cedar barrels, with Nagano's famous "ito-kanten" (thread-like agar) and dashi (soup stock). Made using domestically sourced soybeans and spring water from the Northern Alps mountain range, it follows a traditional, additive-free manufacturing process.

In the miso brewery surrounded by wooden barrels, many inbound visitors come to observe the miso-making process. Following the tour, they are treated to a meal featuring dishes crafted with the miso. With this set, you can effortlessly recreate authentic and nutritious miso soup wherever you are.

The miso produced by Ishii Miso embodies a fusion of traditional Shinshu miso-making techniques passed down through generations and the latest technological advancements, resulting in high-quality miso. It is said that "there is no rest for the three-year miso," indicating the meticulous process it undergoes. Made in spring, it endures the heat of summer, the cold of winter, passes through another summer, and another winter (thus crossing the seasons twice) before reaching full maturity. This three-year miso, shipped from the third year onwards, boasts the finest taste and aroma.

During the manufacturing process, premium domestically sourced soybeans and carefully selected rice koji are used, ensuring that the flavors and umami extracted from these natural ingredients are perfectly reflected in the miso.

Each batch is meticulously crafted by hand, with fermentation and aging lasting up to three years, overseen by skilled artisans. Through the work of microorganisms during this period, a unique depth and richness emerge. The extended fermentation and aging enrich the original flavor of Ishii Miso and give rise to its distinctive, rich, and smooth texture.

Water, an essential component in miso making, is also given special attention. The pristine water from the Northern Alps of Matsumoto, Shinshu, is used, playing a vital role in the production of Ishii Miso, enhancing its flavor profile.

We have an uncompromising commitment to quality, avoiding the use of additives and synthetic flavorings to cherish the natural essence of our ingredients. As a result, Ishii Miso is characterized by its ultimate purity and the authentic flavors of its ingredients.

While inheriting the essence of tradition, we also respond to the expectations of the new era, proudly spreading Japan's miso culture worldwide. Our miso is made with carefully selected natural ingredients, without any additives or synthetic flavorings, preserving its natural deliciousness. It is perfect for those seeking an authentic taste experience.

Unlike the mass-produced miso typically found in supermarkets, which often contain artificial additives and are rushed to market using quick fermentation methods, our miso is fermented over a longer period without the use of fermentation accelerants. This results in miso that retains its essential nutrients, as opposed to being sterilized, which can lead to the destruction of beneficial yeast and lactic acid bacteria. Unfortunately, even miso sold overseas often falls into this category.

Our miso set includes different varieties of our signature three-year miso, along with the essential dashi broth and konnyaku noodles needed to make miso soup. This allows you to enjoy miso soup right at your table without delay. From the rich flavor of red miso to the gentle taste of white miso, you can easily enjoy both casual and authentic miso soup, effortlessly recreating the taste of Japanese home cooking.

The set comes with a recipe booklet that provides delicious serving suggestions. Enjoy the simplicity and tastiness of making miso soup. By experimenting with different combinations of ingredients for your miso soup, you can tailor it to suit the changing seasons and enjoy a variety of flavors at your table.

The Healthy Miso Soup Experience Set is also ideal as a gift for foreign friends and family who want to experience the traditional flavors of Japan. It's perfect for expressing gratitude to loved ones or celebrating special occasions. It's guaranteed to be well-received as a part of experiencing Japanese food culture.

Enjoy the richness of flavor that our delicious miso soup brings to your table!
