What you'll do

Do you want to buy Miso and soy sauce as a souvenir? I think it’s good to have my workshop before you shop. Because a lot of foreign grommet travelers suffer from the language and choosing good condiments on the shelves. Since I’ve been learning about and making fermented foods, I can support you better than other people in the shops. At this workshop, you’ll get the idea how to pick good products and it’ll help you whenever you shop these condiments in your country. Details: 1, Meet at the Takashimaya department store in Yokohama. (It's on the east side of the Yokohama station.) 2, Move to the food court of 'Food & Time Isetan' grocery store. 5mins on foot. (Please order your drink here. There're many kinds of drinks such as fresh fruits juice, craft beer, coffee and etc.) 3, Let me explain all about Miso & soy sauces to give you some idea on how to choose a good product from a big selection in the supermarkets. + How Miso and soy sauce are produced in general? + What're the differences between the products? Such as white Miso and red Miso. (Tasting of Miso and soy sauce are included.) + What can we read from its color, labels and packages? 4, Move on to shopping. There're 2 grocery stores in 'Food & Time Isetan', high qualified one and organic one. Try using the knowledge I shared with you and pick your preferable product. I will support your shop.

I'm a Travelling Fermenter, who have now been travelling and exploring to find about fermented foods for several years. My speciality is homemade Miso, so I conduct some workshops to teach how to prepare it at each home in Japan and overseas since 2012. (There're workshops in Tokyo and Yokohama on Airbnb Experience. https://www.airbnb.jp/experiences/23555) Whenever I have my friends from overseas, I support them finding good Miso and soy sauce. Because there're tremendous numbers of soy sauces and Misos on the shelves of supermarkets but there's no detailed English description​ on the package or anyone who can explain about the difference of each Misos and soy sauces in English. I would like to share my experience and knowledge with you​ if you want genuine fermented​ souvenirs​ of Japan.

What's included

Food
Miso and soy sauce for tasting.
Equipment
Handouts about Miso and soy sauce.

Where you'll be

' Food & Time Isetan ' is the complex of grocery stores and eat-ins. You will find a Sushi & Ramen bar, a cafe, a bakery, a craft beer bar, a juice stand and some grocery stores in here. It's at Yokohama station building. However, this station is way too big, so I'm sure you will get lost easily. So I would like to meet you at the information desk of the Takashimaya department store, where is the most iconic place at Yokohama station.
