Hatcho miso is made from almost 100% soybeans. A long fermentation time of about two years produces a dark brown (chocolate-like), firm textured miso. Hatcho miso has a distinctive soybean flavor and slight sweet aroma. Great for making miso soup, simmered dishes, and to make original miso. This miso is matured in authentic wooden tubs for over two years. It is naturally fermented and additive-free, said to have been favored by the first Edo Shogun, and health food connoisseur, Tokugawa Ieyasu.

Maruya Hatcho miso is the oldest existing Hatcho miso maker in Japan. It was established in 1337 in Hatcho village. The village was located 8-cho, read “ha-cho”, or about 870m west of Okazaki Castle, birthplace of the Shogun, Tokugawa Ieyasu. Original Hatcho Miso has been prepared in the same way since before the Edo period (1603-1868), using only quality soybeans, natural salt and pure water. Maruya Hatcho Miso continues to produce miso in the traditional way, providing traditional tastes that will be carried on by future generations.
