Ito Shoten is a 200 plus year old tamari and miso company nestled in Taketoyo, Aichi Prefecture. Currently run by 85-year old Ito-san (ninth generation) and his grandson (eleventh generation), Ito Shoten uses traditional methods to turn Japan-grown whole soybeans into tamari and miso. 

Produced from only Japanese-grown soybeans and natural sea salt, slowly aged for three years in cedar casks, the tamari has a thick, caramel-ish, smoky, meaty, deep umami flavor that is well balanced, not very salty.

Use as a finishing tamari, or in dipping sauces.
