Ever Since I started my miso class, which has been overwhelmingly popular, I started to look around if there are any miso specialty shops around. And, I found one just in my neighborhood. I must have rode passed it on my bike numerous times, but I had never realized that it was a miso shop!
The Sakamoto Shoten which carries over 30 kinds of miso has been business here in Higashi Gotanda since 1922. They sell miso by weight. (prices range from 320 yen per kilo, min. 500g) So from now on, I will buy my miso here. If you are into miso, please visit this shop which is only 2 minutes from Gotanda Station (JR Yamanote Line) , East Exit, next to the Mitsui Sumitomo Bank.
