Facilities of Our Factory

Proudly Dedicated to Keeping the History and Tradition of Hand-made miso

Fine rice produced in our hometown, Fukui, where there is an abundance of beautiful nature. Home-grown, carefully selected soy beans.
Not only honoring the traditional production method of miso, using solar salt to extract the natural gUmamih from each ingredient, but also during the course of production, the process of steaming the soy beans, Koji production, preparation, fermentation, and so on.

For more than 180 years, the method of miso production in the Komego miso storehouse has remained the same. Therefs no secret; just keep doing what has been done for generations and never neglect any single process. That is the basic key behind Komegofs delicious products.
