Discover Authentic Miso Flavor
From Our Family to Yours
Miso is more than an essential Japanese ingredient; it is a cultural tradition. The Hayashi family has been making miso since 1936.
Miso With Altitude
From 9,843-foot elevation in the pristine ‘Japanese Alps’ of Nagano are snow-capped mountain ranges of incredible beauty. Pure mountain water, clean air, and a cool climate are our secret ‘ingredients.’
Hikari Miso chooses certified organic ingredients and that means: no chemical pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers. We source from certified organic farmers to ensure organic integrity and maintain organic practices in our manufacturing plants. We are the first manufacturer in Japan to earn organic certification in the U.S., the EU and Japan.
Ginza Kuki, a kaiseki restaurant established by a miso company, Hikari Miso, offers a theme of “fermentation and ripening,” cultivated through mastery and dedication to ancient culinary traditions.
