Gathering at the small Tofu shop in the early morning of sunny Saturday for 美濃屋 Minoya TOFU factory tour.
美濃屋 MINOYA is the local TOFU factory in Morishita since 1910’s, very popular among neighbors, Sumo wrestlers and local restaurant.
Their TOFU is made by traditional methods with steel castings by Takahashi family - father and daughter -.

They showed how to make Tofu in their factory and explained the difference between Momen-Tofu and Kinugoshi-Tofu, the way they did find the beans from all over Japan.
We enjoyed tasting fresh TOFU and soy milk.
We also introduced how we cook Tofu as usual dishes on the dairy table.
It was heartwarming experience to see the small Tofu factory in the old residential districts of Tokyo!
