SpotHistory of Noda

The history of Noda soy sauce dates back to the mid-16th century when Iida Ichirobe in Noda made tamari shoyu for the Takeda family, powerful warlords of Yamanashi Prefecture. Some 90 years later, in the Edo period, a full-fledged soy sauce industry took root in Noda. Ingredients of soy sauce including soy beans, wheat and salt were delivered to Noda via the Edo and Tone rivers, and the humid climate was good for making soy sauce. The Takanashi and Mogi families, who founded a forerunner of the later Kikkoman Cooperation, launched their business in the 17th century.
