Recommended points: A big warm hello to friends who love “sashimi” (raw fish)! I would personally very much like to recommend this particular SHOYU named “YUASA” which goes perfectly well with sashimi, especially white fish and tuna fish. The immense flavor of the broth which courses through your nose right at the moment you taste this “YUASA” with sashimi is just so magnificent. In the past, I have tried so many kinds of naturally brewed SHOYU since I love to go out fishing and enjoy eating sashimi with my fishing friends. However, tasting this “YUASA” for the first time in my life was miraculously shocking as it tasted so different, good and made my sashimi really delicious. “YUASA” which is manufactured in Wakayama prefecture is the region famously known for SHOYU brewing. In the same way that we find many wine chateaux in the region of Bourgogne, “YUASA” also has various types of brands, but ever since I met this particular brand, this has always been my choice. But don’t forget! Actually, this brand does not go well with bonito sashimi, just in case there are any international friends who eat raw bonitos! In fact, the two together clashes as this “YUASA” gives too much flavor against the bonito sashimi which has a strong fish smell. For bonito sashimi, I would suggest you to use SHOYU which has been unsealed and used for at least 2 weeks.
