Nikko Yuba Seizo

Nikko "yuba" (bean curd) has been an essential food for Shinto and Buddhist priests of Toshogu and other temples and shrines in Nikko, especially when they go through harsh ascetic training. Today, "yuba" enjoys popularity among many, young and old alike, as a health food.
We carefully choose the best soy, which we process into soy juice. Out of it, we carefully draw out each piece of curd manually. The raw curd, produced first thing in the morning, is a hot item - every customer that has sampled it buys it, for sure.
Also, our kiosk offers "make it yourself" trials for drawing curd out of soy juice, and many tourists join in these trials every year. They say these trials are fun experiences in Nikko that form everlasting memories.
