The Village of Vinegar, Handa's MIZKAN MUSEUM

Vinegar has been a popular condiment in Japan since the fifth century. The brewing town of Handa, south of Nagoya on the picturesque Chita Peninsula, created vinegar as a by-product of Sake brewing. Exporting soy sauce, sake and vinegar across Japan made Handa one of the more prosperous towns during the Edo Period (1603-1868). Handa remains home to the Mizkan company, founded in 1804, and producing vinegar to this day.
