If you are a big fan of Miso like I am, you don’t want to miss this museum while in Nagoya where they explain how the famous fermented soy-been paste is made. The museum is run by the Hatcho Miso company which is quite famous in Aichi prefecture. A famous kind of miso in Aichi is the red miso which is quite sweet and usually served on top of pork cutlets. A miso tasting experience is included at the end of the visit, and of course, a vast selection of miso based products are offered in the souvenir shop.
Since my better half is Japanese I often have the chance to travel to Japan. I grew fond over time of this magnificent country. I thought of sharing with you some places worth visiting in this little but growing travel guide to Japan. I try to show with images what I can't express with words. I hope you may find here some inspiration! For those who wonder, I chose the moniker Gaijin-San after being called like this by a waitress at a grilled eel restaurant. "Gaijin" means foreigner and "San" is a honorific suffix in Japanese. View all posts by Gaijin San
