Tofu making started by the destined encounters
“Think about it, is it possible for an elementary school student to enter the professional baseball team suddenly?” The Tofu craftsman stared at me and said. “It’s for your good. If you are trained here with me for several years, you will be able to make great Tofu with firewood.” I deeply apologized to the kind craftsman, however, I felt I was going to be successful in this Ryujin village with the support of other benefactors who led me to the Tofu shop owner.
A salt craftsman in Kozagawa town who had terminal cancer strongly recommended me to make Tofu with soybeans, the gift from mountains and Nigari (Bittern), the gift from the ocean. An elder woman who is the greatest Tofu master in Ryujin village came to my factory and made such a great Tofu when I was in trouble making Tofu. LOIN’s Tofu is not something I make by myself, but it is something that everybody who once had lived and who lives now in this area makes though me.
