Yamataka Shouyu is in a town in Fukuoka with prominent gourmet food even for
Japan. There is an abundance of tonkotsu ramen, motsu nabe, and things that
are even very popular over sees. For all of these gourmet foods – the base is
always the sweet flavored Fukuoka style soy sauce.
Why is Fukuoka soy sauce so different? There are many opinions on the matter,
but in warm climates people tend to like sweeter things. It may also be because
of how quickly sugar came from overseas.
In this town for over 120 years, Yamataka Shouyu has been together with Fukuoka
soy sauce culture. From here on out we strive to keep traditions alive and protect
the history of our soy sauce culture as well as coming up with new ideas.
