Miso has long been made from a rice and soybean mix based koji culture, but not Hatcho Miso. Original Hatcho Miso has been prepared in the time-honored way since long before the Edo period (1603-1868), using only quality soybeans, natural salt and pure water. The paste is still matured in authentic wooden tubs for over two years to bring you the true taste of tradition.

Naturally Brewed and Additive-Free

Maruya Hatcho Miso was established in 1337 in Hatcho-machi (formerly Hacho Village), so named as it was located at a distance of 8-cho, (read ha-cho, or about 870m) west of Okazaki Castle, birthplace of the Shogun, Tokugawa Ieyasu, and capital of Mikawa Province. The area was located on the important Tokaido highway, and close to the Yahagi River, two major transportation routes. During the Edo period, nearby wharfs enabled the company to obtain soybeans, and salt from the Shioza, exclusive salt merchants, as well as transport the finished product by boat. Maruya Hatcho Miso was prized by the samurai of Mikawa as battle rations, carried under feudal clan orders, and made famous with the development of the Tokaido route. The prepared ingredients are packed into a huge wooden tub, and sealed with over three tonnes of rocks, piled up by hand like a pyramid on top and left to naturally mature over two summers and two winters. This traditional Hatcho Miso production process continues to this day.
“Hatcho” Miso is so named as it was located at a distance of 8-cho, (read ha-cho, or about 870m) west of Okazaki Castle, birthplace of the Shogun, Tokugawa Ieyasu. It is a naturally fermented, additive-free food, said to have been favored by the first Edo Shogun, and health food connoisseur, Tokugawa Ieyasu.

HATCHO MISO MANUFACTURING PROCESS

  • Hatcho Miso is made from soybeans.

  • Steamed soybeans are packed into baseball sized clumps and dusted with a starter culture called koji, imperative for the fermentation process, and left for four days. (Original Miso)

  • The soybean koji, salt and water is then carefully packed into the huge cedar barrels and pressed flat by foot to remove any air bubbles.

  • The skilled Miso craftsmen then stack piles of heavy stones on top of the lid, one by one.

  • The Miso is then allowed to age in the huge wooden tubs for over two years to become true Hatcho Miso.

  • Completion of a Hatcho Miso.
