I had heard just name of Daitokuji-natto, but I tried having it when I visited there to write an article for this site. I am planning to get it to give my family as a souvenir. It is because my farther love drinking with salty food. In addition, Although the shop is a small, appearance and interior are the place where this is Kyoto.
When the owner is packing your food, they would serve green tea. This kind of hospitality makes me feeling so nice.

A bit salty and Miso flavor is getting stronger at last.
Chewy and soft texture is an addictive taste.
It expresses the shape of mountain.
There are many way to eat it. With rice, pour soup after mashed it or put it on pizza and pasta instead of salt interestingly. Try to use it as a seasoning. It is in a luxury box and great for souvenirs.
