Hello, thank you for looking. I'm a massage therapist for 18 years. Sometime, I'm a Japanese tea instructor in the Kyoto samurai house. I'm interested in body and mind, so I wanna provide not only massage service but also the way of wellness. This time, I want to enjoy making miso class together. ◎You can enjoy making handmade miso and bring it home(about 500g). ◎Our dishes are gluten-free , MSG-free and vegan dishes. We use koji seasoning, Japanese traditional natural seasoning. ◎Thorough our experience, you can learn zen philosophy and how to lead wellness lifestyle both physically and mentally. ◎You can enjoy the experience in the historical Samurai house built 300 years ago Miso is Japanese traditional fermented seasoning. Miso is rich in nutrients and very useful ingredient in the kitchen. Traditionally, miso is made from whole soybeans but we make it using tofu refuse so you can make it easier and quicker!! Though soy pulp is healthy food and rich in nutrients , it is disposed of as industrial waste!! This is an effective use. Very friendly seasoning both people and environment, soy pulp miso. Why don't you make it together?
