Soy sauce factory on Shodoshima island (Marukin shoyu)

If you love soy sauce like I do and you want to know how it is made, you should head to the Marukin soy sauce factory museum on Shodoshima island. The visit is very cheap and informative on the method to make soy sauce from wheat and soy-beans. On top of that a free sample bottle of Marukin soy sauce is given at the end of the visit. Soy sauce ice cream is also sold on site, oishi!

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.
