Restaurant Details

At the cornerstone of Japanese food stands shoyu (soy sauce), a perfect blend of salty, sweet, and umami, transforming dishes from sushi to stir-fries. Immerse yourself in culinary enchantment at Kuramoto Ryori Maruto Shoyu, where history meets innovation. Originally established in 1689, this soy sauce brewery, once an imperial purveyor, is reawakened after 70 years, bringing its rich past into the present. Collaborating with the 18th-generation owner, the head chef curates a menu that elevates soy sauce into an art form, constantly reinventing its use in cuisine and challenging existing perceptions of the humble condiment. From Miwa somen with soy sauce foam to takikomi gohan (Japanese-style mixed rice) adorned with unrefined soy powder, every dish is a celebration of innovation rooted in tradition, with its focus on sustainability earning it a Green Star in the Michelin Guide. Breathe in Edo period ambience echoing in every corner, a tale of resilience and revival. Taste history's heartbeat in dishes seasoned to perfection, where each bite shines with the essence of local vegetables, echoing the region's rich culinary legacy.
