News of Article Publication_Akita Sakigake Newspaper
I was introduced to Yamamo’s efforts in the Akita Sakigake Newspaper on April 20th. Repeated innovative test brewing based on technologies and ideas outside the industry, and research and research from angles other than miso soy sauce such as sake and wine resulted in the discovery of the yeast technology Viamver that corresponds to patented technology It was. Starting with a gorgeous fragrance, each time we conducted various research, we found useful benefits one after another, and within the research team, we began to think about expectations for innovative product development and impact on the industry. We kindly interviewed the flow from the beginning of development to patent application and service provision. I would like you to read the article.
Although the spread of the new coronavirus will cause a great change in society, we would like to continue further development and provision of services with the belief that using Viamver can exert better effects on people’s lives and health. I will. Below, I would like to introduce the new products of fermented lamb and fermented silver cod. Due to the action of bacteria, the odor masking effect and the game are softened like pork and beef, and the fish is soft enough to loosen the body by ignoring the fibers. We have developed a fermentation source that suits each meat and fish by taking advantage of the bacterium’s umami, and we are implementing our own meal experience by repeating the process of low temperature cooking, sauté, and steaming. In the future, I would like to advance the brewing of natural wine using Viamver and realize pairing. Thank you for your new Yamamo product. _mediainfo._newspaper
New yeast found in Kura
“Yamamo miso soy sauce brewing company, Takamogo name company” (President Yoshihiko Takahashi) of Iwasaki, Yuzawa City, discovered yeast that can be expected to be used in a wide range of ingredients such as meat, fish and sake in addition to miso and soy sauce. . It is said to have various functions such as the production of umami ingredients, and a patent for the manufacturing method of seasonings that was jointly developed with the Prefectural Food Research Center (Akita City) was filed in early February. The company is seeking new business development centered on this yeast.
This yeast was discovered in 2017 by a yeast survey conducted by the center, which was carried out by a brewery manufacturer in the prefecture. When the company entered into a joint research agreement with the center and conducted a closer examination of the yeast, in addition to its high ability to produce umami components, it is unusual for yeast derived from miso and has the ability to produce relatively high alcohol in a salt-free environment. It turns out that there is.
Therefore, we started to develop a seasoning “yeast liquid” that makes the best use of the characteristics of yeast. As a result of trying various food ingredients, in addition to adding umami ingredients, it has the effect of softening fish and meat and eliminating odors, and it can be expected to be used in various ways.
Used for product development and tours
Managing Director Yasushi Takahashi said, “Isn’t it possible that yeast was born by trying various manufacturing methods such as using bacteria outside the industry in test brewing? It should be an opportunity to throw it. ”
The company is focusing on tours of its own brewing factory and garden, and newly established a culture and fermentation room of about 8 square meters near the entrance so that you can observe the development process of soy sauce using new yeast up close. . We are also developing wine and course dishes that use yeast, and are providing a trial mutton and silver cod lunch course (tax-excluded 1800-2200 yen, reservation required) at our in-house cafe.
In anticipation of the long-term effects of the new coronavirus, we are also considering the development of set products that deliver course meals along with wine by home delivery. Managing Director Takahashi said, “We would like to explore the way the service should be, considering the effects of the new coronavirus.”

On the day of the event, we had a group tour of 20 people for travel agencies inside and outside the prefecture, and also got an understanding from those who visited us. From the person who was in charge of the prefecture in charge of our company for several years ago, we received an opinion that “the gallery was able to comprehend the degree of persuasive power and understanding.” I realize that art activities and residence methods that land celebrities have carried out in the past demonstrate their effect on improving living culture and creative activities even in modern times. I hope many people will see art activities that followed the legacy. _mediainfo._newspaper

There is a charge of 1500 yen by advance reservation system, but 250 people visit each year. Mr. Yasushi Takahashi says there is an inquiry from travel agencies overseas for wealthy people.

Analysis that it is not utilized as tourism resources despite the abundance of attractive resources of “Akita original” of fermented food culture. Focusing on individual travel that emphasizes “experience” based on history and culture, in fiscal 2006, subsidies were issued to three locations, and it was maintained as an attraction base.
Katsuaki Kawata, Deputy Sales Planning Department, Akita Alcohol Production, said, “Following the 20-year Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Osaka World Expo (International Expo) in 25 years will be decided and the wave of foreigners coming to Japan will continue.” The prefecture will promote multilingual correspondence, etc. and intend to include not only Japanese customers but also increasing number of Japanese visitors.
At the Asahi Newspaper December 13 “Tohoku Economy” we are introducing our efforts of Yamamo in the title of “New Wind for Young Businessman 100 Year Company”. There was a request as we wanted to take up a reforming company, and this time it was carried. Beginning with overseas development six years ago and garden improvement three years ago, we have laminated the contents to a brewery with the opening of the factory store and tour, the establishment of a garden cafe, a gallery and a brewery. Here we are advancing as a concept how to follow the reform legacy (legacy) by the 4th generation · Hikoshiro and the head family Nanosuke. There are now a series of actions of people with various feelings. The pursuit of how to spin the thoughts and heritage of the people involved during the period from the establishment to 151 is not over yet. _mediainfo._newspaper
Young Managers One Hundred Years Companies Have New Winds
There are young managers who breathe a new sense while inheriting that tradition in Michinoku’s “100-year company” with a history of more than a hundred years. We are focusing not only on improving our core business but also on regional revitalization and overseas.
Miso Soy Sauce Send Information Abroad
Yuzawa City, Akita Prefecture, known for heavy snow areas. Mr. Yasushi Takahashi (39) is the seventh generation of Yamamo Miso sauce brewing company, founded in 1867 (Keio 3) year. I studied design engineering at Chiba University and I was worried about succeeding my family business. However, he came back with “I better to crush by myself than to regret without being inherited.”
First we began making labels to put on brochures and soy sauce containers. The design which shaped the shop name in English notation won the Good Design Award in 2013. Besides expanding sales channels overseas, it is up to foreign tourists to put in power now.
On the company’s website you can also send product information in English. In addition, we upgraded the cafe and gardens by the in-house reconstruction, and began a fee-based tour that allows us to experience soy sauce builds three years ago. Last year, about 250 people participated, with 1,500 yen per person, of which about one-third of foreigners. Mr. Takahashi said, “I would like to advance the diversification of programs such as incorporating workshops in the future.”
On November 30, Akita Sakigake Shimpo, I got an article about our gallery and cafe. To widely notify everyone of the value of the garden which has kept protecting for several generations, to spend time slowly in this place. I thought that using cafe is what satisfies these two.
In addition, we recognize that the gallery is suitable for communicating the history and living community to the community to the next generation. People who were once famous for it were familiar and were doing what they would leave in paintings and sliding doors. I hope to incorporate that method into contemporary times and to be able to become a catalyst for the next generation to notice the important things that take root in the land. Mr. Fujita of the reporter, thank you for a wonderful summary. _mediainfo._newspaper
History of Yuzawa, handed down in art Opened a gallery at the factory
Yuzawa Iwasaki’s “Yamamo Miso sauce brewing source · Takusho jointly-owned company” (President Yoshihiko Takahashi) opened a gallery decorating artworks based on regional history and culture on the second floor of the brewery. On the first floor, the cafe is also open. The company has been holding tours of its own brewery and gardens since last year, adding more elements of the art, expanding the contents, and planning to attract guests from home and abroad. The gallery was opened by refurbishing the room which was used as a hotel room for employees. We exhibited paintings painted with the company’s seeds on canvas and works using washi in Minasegawa flowing locally.
Among the works are second-generation town mayors of former Iwasaki Town and some paintings based on motif Nanosuke Takahashi who promoted the modernization of the town. The company’s 7th generation, Yasushi Takahashi (39) stated, “The walks of the people who created the area remain in the town as a stone monument or remnant.To communicate with the works of the gallery, branding throughout the region I want to try it. “
In the café opened at the same time, we offer coffee using stock water, Four using soy sauce soup of our company, Gelato of soybean etc. It is said that they want to feel free to visit a wide range of local residents and tourists. In addition, I made it possible to experience original label making of soy sauce bottle at warehouse.
The tour began in autumn 2016 by Mr. Takahashi, who wanted to promote tourism attendants that made full use of the region’s history and the charm of the brewing industry. About 250 people both domestically and abroad visited last year, guiding their own storage and gardens. The garden, which is one of the highlights, incorporates the method of “borrowed landscape” that uses the scenery outside the park as a background. From within the park, you can wish for the “water shrine” in the area where the water god was celebrated, and you can feel that the Iwasaki area where the brewery industry developed was blessed with abundant water resources. “I want you to feel the climate of the area where you cultivated the brewing industry, along with the history of the warehouse,” Takahashi Managing Director.
In addition to general tourists, I would like people to come to work for entrepreneurs, civic activists and artists who are active in various fields both in Japan and abroad. Mr. Takahashi said, “Compared to Japan, artists are familiar to families, and I want to make the area an interesting place by involving people with diverse cultures and values in the city.”
On the day of posting of the article, it is an exhibition of our gallery organized by Akita prefecture, and we are going to see Akita Saki Shimpo, Nikkei Newspaper, ABS Akita Broadcasting, AAB Akita Asahi Broadcasting and visiting the evening news I got a news report. Thank you very much.
