Shodoshima has a long and proud tradition of producing soy sauce dating back over 400 years. Shodoshima soy sauce is meticulously handcrafted from carefully selected ingredients and matured in wooden barrels called “koga”. Of the 3,000 barrels still in use across Japan, over 1,000 are on the island of Shodoshima. Soy sauce also serves as the base for various kinds of seasonings. The “delicious Nippon taste” of Shodoshima soy sauce is delivered all over the country.
