Message from the President

Thank you for visiting the official website of Nikko Soy Sauce Robatazuke.

What is “Nikko Soy Sauce Robatazuke”?
"Soy sauce pickles" start with making soy sauce.

Excellent texture and soy sauce aroma.
The process we have cultivated so far,
Even if you leave out one thing, it won't taste like this.

Even if you want better taste, you cannot change the process.
In that case, it would be better to make that soy sauce even more delicious.

What I was aiming for was pickles that would go well with rice.
For that purpose, we make soy sauce that goes well with rice.

The only ingredients are domestically produced salted vegetables and soy sauce.
I hope this taste is what you were looking for.

[About Nikko soy sauce]

Our company started as a koji manufacturing company in 1890.
We are a young brewery in the soy sauce brewing industry, having been in business for about 120 years.

The path to brewing began with just a handful of rice koji.
We have walked the path of miso and soy sauce brewing,
One day, I discovered a unique method of brewing soy sauce.

In the past, this soy sauce manufacturing method was kept secret.
Even within the company, only a few people were able to enter the brewery.

The soy sauce that our company continues to brew, which was unknown at the time, has entered the center stage of history as the soy sauce presented to Nikko Toshogu Shrine, ``Fudai Soden''.

And the trial and error process of making better soy sauce continues even today.

Your delicious food is our joy.
In order to make it easy for even first-timers to understand the [soy sauce] that supports the deepest part of it,
“Nikko Soy Sauce Robatazuke” in September 2021
We changed the store name to .

We will continue to strive for quality that will earn our customers' patronage.
