Ok

Not much to see but guess it may be interesting to those with zero knowledge of soy sauce. Tried the soy sauce ice-cream but it only tasted like ice-cream.

I might say it is boring, but it is not, because there are models that show you how soy sauce was made, as well as the preserved room of soy sauce fermentation as an exhibit. However the museum is not very interesting either. You visit it and you learn... More

This is just along the way from my cycling route so I decided to stop by. It has free admission. when you get inside, you will see the old ways people do to make soy sauce. You will see there some old bottles of soy sauce and new ones today. Big barrels are also displayed inside.

It is not only just a soy sauce but also part of our history! This is a museum to show us how soy sauce became a big part of Shodoshima's cultures and industry. With an entrance feel, a bottle of their soy sauce comes as a souvenior, so it is well worth a visit. Also, soy sauce ice cream is... More

The memorial has all the old tools used for making soy sauce, but if you have no previous exposure to these items, it might be difficult to understand what you see. But the immediate area around this memorial is great spot for a little walk. You enjoy soy sauce smell, bunch of old soy sauce factories, traditional homes etc. Enjoy... More
