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.

3 types of sugar confectioneries you can enjoy. Simple sugar, Cinnamon and Matcha. It must be brilliant with tea, coffee or Japanese green tea. All of them are in Daitokuji-natto. Recommended that it is used as a sugar when you make meals.

Is natto just not enough for you? Then, how about black natto? The natto they offer at this shop right in front of Daitoku-ji Temple is black as soot, but the taste has something blue cheese and something miso in it, and it might delight those into strong cheeses. The look of the natto is quite striking to say the least, but I hope you will try some.
