    Yamamo Miso and Soy Sauce Brewing Company : Rebranding 150 Years of Tradition

    Legacy-based Social Change from a Brewery

    In Yuzawa City, Akita Prefecture, there is the Yamamo Miso and Soy Sauce Brewing Company, which has been in business for over 150 years since its founding in the late Edo period. Although it is a long-established brewery, Yamamo Miso and Soy Sauce is also making efforts to disseminate its culture not only domestically but also to the rest of the world by building a gallery and a cafe. We interviewed Mr. Yasushi Takahashi, the seventh generation head of the brewery, who aims to fuse tradition and innovation, about his thoughts and future business plans.

    事業継承後は、「“Life is Voyage” 世界の食文化と和の調味料が融合し、進化していくこと」を新たな企業理念に掲げ、2012年に初の海外輸出に成功。また、「土地や建物に宿るレガシーを見出し、新たなコンテンツとして発信する」ことを目指し、100年以上前に4代目が作庭した庭に融雪装置を整備し、本来の形を維持しながらも持続可能にしたり、蔵の一部を改装してアートギャラリーとカフェを新設したりした。2017年からは、蔵や醸造工程を見学できるインバウンド向けのファクトリーツアーも開始している。



    Carrying on a traditional industry while pursuing our own style

    Yamamo Miso and Soy Sauce Brewing Company was established in 1867 in Iwasaki, Yuzawa City in southeastern Akita Prefecture, and has been brewing miso and soy sauce for over 150 years. The area, where the tranquil Minase River flows, was an important center for waterborne trade and prospered as a castle town and post town. Seeing a need for miso and soy sauce, the founder, Takahashi Mosuke, began making miso using the beautiful water and richly flavored rice of Iwasaki. That was the beginning of Yamamo.

    Today, Yamamo is led by the seventh generation, Mr. Yasushi Takahashi. He originally wanted to be an architect and “had no intention of taking over the family business,” says Yasushi, who majored in architecture at university. However, as he was about to graduate, he questioned his own values and decided to return to his hometown, saying, “If I don’t take over the family business, I will regret it.

    After taking over the business, he set up a new corporate philosophy, “‘Life is Voyage’: the fusion and evolution of the world’s food culture and Japanese seasonings,” and succeeded in exporting his products overseas for the first time in 2012. The company also aims to “discover the legacy of the land and buildings and transmit it as new content. In 2017, the company began offering factory tours for inbound visitors to see the brewery and the brewing process.

    In 2017, the company began offering factory tours for inbound visitors, where they can tour the brewery and the brewing process. “We aim to become the final destination by digging deep into the history and culture of our company and the region, and layering the contents in the brewery. Traditional industries connect the thoughts of our predecessors and lead to the present day. We believe that it is the role of traditional industries to convey messages that transcend time through industry, culture, and art, and to allow visitors and local residents to experience them with a sense of beauty.



    1867 年創業於秋田縣東南部湯澤市岩崎市的“Yamamo味噌醬油釀造商”已有 150 多年的歷史。平靜的水瀨川流過的地區是重要的水貿易據點,曾作為城下町和驛站繁榮發展。發現對味噌和醬油的需求的創始人高橋茂輔開始使用岩崎的美麗水和豐富的大米製作味噌。這就是山毛的開始。


    繼事業繼承後,2012年,以“融合、進化世界飲食文化和日本調味料”的新企業理念“Life is Voyage”,首次成功出口海外。此外,以“發現土地和建築物中的遺產,並將其作為新內容傳播”為目的,我們在 100 多年前第 4 代創建的花園中安裝了融雪裝置,同時保持其原始形狀。它已經變得可持續,部分倉庫已經翻新,開設了一個藝術畫廊和咖啡館。從2017年開始,我們還為入境游客開始了工廠參觀活動,可以觀察釀酒廠和釀造過程。





    ” Viamver®”酵母の発見





    Discovery of “Viamver®” yeast

    One of his challenges is to research new yeasts and develop products using them. One of his challenges is to research new yeasts and develop products using them. While conducting test brewing at the brewery, Tai discovered a new yeast and presented it at the Japanese Society of Brewing Research.

    “The yeast, which he named Viamver®, could be used to brew miso, soy sauce, and wine, and also had the unusual property of improving the meat quality of meat and fish.

    “Typically, yeast used for brewing sake is killed by salt, so it cannot be used for cooking. However, Viamver was a rare yeast that could be used for both sake and cooking. The probability of discovering such a yeast would be as astronomical as discovering a new planet. For this reason, we combined the words for planet and amber and named it Viamver®, and the research and development team ASTRONOMICA®, meaning the ancient universe.





    “一般來說,用來釀造清酒的酵母不能用於烹飪,因為如果它含有鹽,它就會死亡。但是,Viamver 是一種稀有的酵母,既可以用於清酒,也可以用於烹飪。發現這種酵母有一個天文數字的可能性。新行星。由此,將行星和琥珀這兩個詞結合起來,創造了遠古宇宙的研發團隊“Viamver®”。我將其命名為“ASTRONOMICA®”,意思是“






    今後手掛けたいと考えているのは、ビールづくりだ。すでにワインは、秋田県の研究センターとの共同研究を通して、新酵母を生かした醸造に着手している。伝統と革新的技術でベルリンの都市開発チーム「NION」やコペンハーゲンの研究開発チーム「SPACE10」などの国際的開発組織でワークショップやプレゼンテーションを展開してきた。この秋にはアムステルダムの「MONO JAPAN」と取り組みを共にしていく。ビールづくりでは、ぜひ海外メーカーとも組んだ取り組みにしたいのだという。



    Development of a full course using the same yeast for the entire menu

    After the discovery of the yeast, Mr. Yasushi worked with chefs from Japan and abroad who supervise the café, as well as researchers who had conducted joint research on the yeast, to develop a menu using the yeast, and created a full course using the yeast in all dishes. It is said that no other course in the world uses the same yeast for all the dishes.

    “There are three stages of yeast fermentation: the growth stage, the steady state stage, and the convergence stage, and the best time to use yeast is different for each dish. The best time to use yeast fermentation liquid differs from dish to dish, so we repeatedly experiment with each dish to find out which time of the year is best. The taste and aroma of the yeast fungus changes when the wine is fresh and when it is aged, so the chef decides the taste of each dish accordingly and chooses the wine to go with it.

    What he would like to do in the future is to make beer. The company has already started brewing wine using a new yeast through joint research with a research center in Akita Prefecture. With its traditional and innovative technology, the company has conducted workshops and presentations at international development organizations such as NION, an urban development team in Berlin, and SPACE10, a research and development team in Copenhagen. This fall, they will share their efforts with “MONO JAPAN” in Amsterdam. They would like to collaborate with overseas manufacturers in the creation of beer.

    “We want to develop a beer that combines yeast from Japanese seasonings with the food culture of the continent, and market it both in Japan and overseas. We are living in an age where various experiments are being conducted to see how Japanese and Western cultures can be fused together. I believe that Japan’s traditional industries will be able to demonstrate their strength in such an era.



    發現Viamver®後,泰先生與監督咖啡廳的國內外廚師和共同研究細菌的研究人員合作,使用Viamver®進行菜單開發,所有菜單都使用相同的酵母進行全餐. 我補了課程。據說,在所有菜餚中只使用相同酵母的套餐在世界上是獨一無二的。


    我將來想從事的是啤酒製作。通過與秋田縣的研究中心的聯合研究,葡萄酒已經開始使用新酵母釀造。憑藉傳統和創新技術,他曾在柏林的城市開發團隊“NION”和哥本哈根的研發團隊“SPACE10”等國際開發組織舉辦研討會和演講。今年秋天,我們將與阿姆斯特丹的“MONO JAPAN”合作。在啤酒釀造方面,他說他想與海外製造商合作。












    Fusing Japanese and Western Food Cultures for Legacy-Based Social Change

    The brewing industry itself is about cultivating the region,” says Mr. Yasushi.

    “By turning the grains grown in the region into miso, soy sauce, sake, etc., the value of agricultural products can be increased tenfold or even a hundredfold. This will enrich the producers and support the entire region. If we can brush up on this kind of industry and successfully incorporate it into the modern world, we can reweave our history and climate and redefine our regional identity.

    Furthermore, it is the mission of those involved in traditional industries to act as the standard-bearers.

    “I want to transform Yamamo into a place that pursues regional sustainability while maintaining the foundation of the miso and soy sauce industries. I call it ‘legacy-based social change.

    At the same time as protecting and nurturing traditional industries, I want to discover what only I can do and create new innovations. In order to pursue both, Mr. Tai feels that “the best way is to explore the roots of your own birth and upbringing.

    “I think this approach can be applied not only to those who inherit a business, but actually to everyone.”




    “通過將當地種植的穀物轉化為味噌、醬油、清酒等,我們可以將農產品的價值提高 10 到 100 倍。這樣一來,生產者就會豐富起來,整個地區也會變得豐富。如果我們可以振興這些產業,將它們融入當今時代,我們將能夠重新旋轉歷史和氣候,重新設定該地區的身份。”


    “我想把 Yamamo 打造成一個追求區域可持續發展的地方,同時建立在味噌醬油行業的基礎上。我稱之為“基於遺產的社會變革。”











    What it means to start locally

    The development team, ASTRONOMICA®, is currently expanding its activities to include architects and artists from outside the company. They are collaborating on a project basis to create a variety of activities in the community.

    For example, this summer they launched a community garden project to revive an abandoned field owned by Yamamo and open it to the local community. This will be used as a test case, and its application will be expanded to the entire Iwasaki region, with the goal of reducing the amount of abandoned land to zero in pursuit of regional sustainability.

    “We are living in an age of infectious diseases, and people all over the world are searching for the next way of life and environment. We believe that the local brewing industry, which once cultivated the region, can take on a new role by connecting with the world’s culture and industry, and advocate a way of being that is appropriate for the next generation.

    We believe that the local brewing industry, which once cultivated the region, can play a new role in connecting with global culture and industry, and advocate a way of being that is appropriate for the next generation. The role of the local in a changing world may be to create opportunities to think about structural changes in society as a whole, while respecting the local way of being.



    目前,來自外部的建築師和藝術家正在參與開發團隊 ASTRONOMICA®,擴大了活動範圍。他們正在以項目為基礎進行合作,在該地區開展各種活動。

    都市開発や地域開発において、公共スペースにいかにして取り組んでいくのかが、プロジェクトの鍵を握ります。2016年の中北米の旅で訪問したブルックリンの都市開発チームは、利用価値の少ない土地を戦略的に公共利用していくことで、そのきっかけをつくりました。また、七代目の高橋が2015年にシアトルのソーシャル・イノベーションプログラムに参画し、現地でコミュニティガーデンによる社会課題の解決の現場を視察しております。これらの知見から、ヤマモの所有する耕作放棄地の再生をプロジェクト化し、”COMMUNITY GARDEN”として公共利用していくことで、地域開発の一端を担おうと考えるようになりました。


    “YAMAMO COMMUNITY GARDEN PROJECT”は湯沢市の協力のもと、地元岩崎地域の広報誌「かしま館報」に掲載していただき、広く地域の皆様にも共有し、取り組んでいきます。市民活動を起点とした教育と世代間交流を包含したプロジェクトが地域再生に繋がることを目標としています。






    In urban and community development, how we address public space is key to our projects, and the Brooklyn urban development team we visited on our 2016 trip to Central and North America created the impetus for this by strategically using underutilized land for public use. In addition, Takahashi, the seventh generation, participated in a social innovation program for food and agriculture in Seattle in 2015, and observed the fieldwork of solving social issues through community gardens there. Based on this knowledge, we have come to think that we can play a part in the development of the region by turning the abandoned farmland owned by Yamamo into a project and using it as a “COMMUNITY GARDEN” for public use.

    The concept of public use of land has been around for several years, but we have not had the opportunity to implement it due to manpower issues, relationships with local people, and compatibility with the local environment. With the increasing number of high school and college students coming and going over the past few years, and the generational change in employees, we finally decided to start this summer. We will organize him and her, and through the utilization of abandoned farmland, induce diverse exchanges such as intergenerational communication, and through the cooperation of diverse attributes, revitalize the region and realize individual skill improvement and career development.

    With the cooperation of Yuzawa City, the “YAMAMO COMMUNITY GARDEN PROJECT” will be published in the “Kashimakanpo”, the local public relations magazine for the Iwasaki area, and will be shared widely with the local community. Our goal is that this project, which includes education and intergenerational exchange based on citizen activities, will lead to the regeneration of the region.


    [ Community Garden Case Study ]

    1.Preservation of indigenous species
     Gardens and fields created to protect not only improved varieties but also “native species” that have been optimized and rooted in the climate.
    2.Ecosystem maintenance
     A community garden created to maintain the ecosystem of a nearby lake.
    3.Racial issues
     Community gardens created to protect neighborhoods for people of color.
    4.Poverty problem
     A community garden to solve the problem of poverty, where anyone can take home fruits and vegetables from the garden.



    該項目的關鍵是如何處理城市發展和區域發展中的公共空間。 布魯克林城市開發團隊於 2016 年訪問中美洲和北美,通過戰略性地公開使用低效用價值的土地創造了機會。 此外,第 7 代高橋在 2015 年參加了西雅圖的食品和農業社會創新計劃,正在參觀通過社區花園解決社會問題的現場。 根據這些調查結果,我開始考慮通過制定一個項目來使 Yamamo 擁有的廢棄耕地再生並將其作為“社區花園”公開使用,從而為區域發展做出貢獻。

    土地公用的概念已經出現好幾年了,但要落實,卻因人為問題、與當地人的關係、與當地環境的兼容性等原因,未能得到機會。… 由於這幾年來來去去的高中生和大學生的增加,以及員工幾代人的更替,我們最終決定在今年夏天開始。 我們將組織起來,通過廢棄耕地的利用,引發代際交流等多元化交流,通過協調各種屬性,實現區域振興、個人技能提升和職業發展。

    在湯澤市的合作下,“YAMAMO 社區花園項目”將在當地岩崎地區的公關雜誌“鹿島看守”上發表,並被該地區的每個人廣泛分享和參與。 目標是一個包括從公民活動開始的教育和代際交流的項目將導致區域振興。

    Yamamo Miso and Soy Sauce Brewing Company is launching a community garden project in cooperation with university and high school students in the prefecture. Community gardens are not planned, established, and operated by the government, but by local residents as a voluntary activity. The abandoned farmland owned by Yamamo will be used as a test case, and its application will be expanded to the entire Iwasaki area, with the goal of reducing the number of abandoned farmlands to zero, in pursuit of regional sustainability. We will welcome young interns from universities and high school students to promote diverse communication. In the future, we will create lawns and hills in the community garden, making it a playground for local children and a gathering place for the child-rearing generation. We will also set up a field where local residents can casually drop by and hold events during harvest time and in the community garden, creating a place for multigenerational communication in the entire community. Through this project, we aim to revitalize the community. Through this project, we hope to increase the number of human resources who will go on to revitalize the community and solve local issues.

    After I got involved with Yamamo, I wanted to be able to speak my mind independently. I want to not only listen to what others have to say, but also to add to what they have to say in order to advance the project. I’m really excited to be involved in a big project. First, we had to sort out the trash in the abandoned farmland to start the project. It was a very daunting task, but I really wanted to turn it into a field with my own hands. I am also very much looking forward to this project as I have not had many opportunities to participate in events and projects that communicate with the local community. I would be happy if more people would be interested in this project.

    When I saw the abandoned farmland covered in weeds, I doubted whether it would really be possible to turn it into a farm. The sheer amount of weeds made me despair many times, but I think the reason why I was able to continue working on this project without giving up was because I had seen Yamamo’s ever-changing appearance from my side. Witnessing the moment when something that I thought I couldn’t change anyway was transforming, I somehow changed my mind that I should be able to turn this land full of grass and garbage into a field. Through this project, I feel that running a community garden can make a difference in the lives of the town and the people who live there. In the events I plan to organize in the future, I would like to share this realization with the local people.


    Yamamo Internship,秋田國際大學四年級學生,五来夏鈴
    在滿是雜草的廢棄耕地前,我懷疑這裡是否真的是一片田地。 很多次我都渴望擁有大量的草,但我想我之所以不放棄繼續努力,是因為我看到了山毛千變萬化的樣子。 當我目睹我認為我無法改變的事情正在發生變化的那一刻,我突然改變了主意,我應該能夠將這片滿是草和垃圾的土地變成一片田地。 通過這個項目,我覺得社區花園的運營可以改變城鎮和居住在那裡的人們的生活。 在我們從現在開始計劃的活動中,我想向當地人傳達這種意識。
