If you are really deep into Japanese cooking, you'll notice that yes, there's one ingredient missing from the Nakagawa Masashichi Shoten Japanese Cuisine Essentials Set: the sweet wine called mirin. But since you are already getting sugar (actually raw sugar from Kagoshima Prefecture and Okinawa Prefecture), you are covered. This is an assortment that allows you to make cook almost any Japanese dish you can think of. And since this is a box set created by Nakagawa Masashichi Shoten, a shop that has been an institution in Nara since the times of the shogun (it was founded in 1716), you can be certain that each ingredient has been chosen with the highest standards!
Other than the sugar that comes from the southern prefectures, everything else in the Nakagawa Masashichi Shoten Japanese Cuisine Essentials Set comes from Nara. You get salt, rice vinegar, dark soy sauce, and barley miso, plus a Nakagawa Masashichi classic: their Yakumi Miso Condiment, which is a sprinkle-style mix containing Welsh onion, dried plum, yuzu citrus, garlic, pepper, salt, and an unusual fine-powdered miso (miso is normally available as paste). Get yours now and make your kitchen a studio of washoku (Japanese) cooking!
