A unique sauce, the only one made in Japan using a wooden barrel aging process.
What is known simply as "sauce" in Japan is based on Worcestershire sauce, which originated in England. However, Japan's Worcestershire sauce was tweaked and refined after being brought to Japan, so the ingredients and taste are now very different. Also, there are versions of the sauce that are unique to Japan, such as a thicker version which is used on tonkatsu.
First is an explanation of the sauce manufacturing process, followed by a tour of the premises.
Torii Sauce is made using homemade vinegar made with locally brewed sake lees from Hananomai brewing and locally procured vegetables, which are slowly matured in wooden barrels.
At the end of the tour, you can experience filling a bottle and applying a label, you can take home the bottle you filled yourself as a souvenir from the tour.
After the tour, you can buy products from the store attached to the factory. The sauce is also available for sale at MAY-ONE EKIMACHI WEST in Hamamatsu Station, and in supermarkets throughout the city.
