Making Miso A Farmstay Experience

Arigato Japan Tour-Guide Jordan and wife Satomi had the chance to stay at Minshuku Kuyama (a traditional Japanese Home-Stay) and learn how to make Miso with an expert! VIDEO BELOW!

Miso is a staple Japanese ingredient made from a fermented mixture of White Soy Bean and Koji yeast.  Many Minshuku home-stays offer traditional crafts and cooking workshops, and are a fantastic alternative to a hotel while travelling Japan!  Minshuku Kuyama is a perfect place to stay on your way from Tokyo to the wonderful hot-spring and Fuji-viewing town of Hakone!
