As its name suggests, Tsurumiso is a miso-producing company located in the small town of Yanagawa in Fukuoka County (Kyushu Island). Yanagawa is a pretty little town crossed by a multitude of canals that can be traveled on small boats.
The historic Tsurumiso headquarters, existing since 1870, is housed in an old red brick building bordering one of the branches of the Yanagawa canals network.
