TOFU

Most Japanese families routinely stock one or two  packages of tofu in their fridge. Tofu are such convenient products that you can enjoy eating without cooking.

Please prepare some soya source and katsuobushi (dried bonito fish) or grate ginger etc., so that delicious hiya-yakko will be ready, and in winter time, boiled tofu are also eaten. It is called yu-dofu and is real good.

There are many different varieties of tofu, including fresh tofu and tofu that has been processed in some way.
Tofu originated in Han dynasty China about 2000 years ago and introduced into Japan during the Nara period (710-794). It spread into other parts of East Asia as well.

This spread probably coincided with the spread of Buddhism because it is an important source of protein in the vegetarian diet of East Asian Buddhism.

 

Tofu are used be sold by Tofu shops. There were one or two Tofu shops in every small town when I was a child in 70s. However, still now, you can find some Tofu shops that maintain a traditional method for producing Tofu and where you can buy fresh tofu and also fresh soy milk! I suggest trying fresh soy milk, if you find any Tofu shop.

Some of them are offering the experience to make Tofu. Are you interested in making tofu? Then why don’t you try making tofu with us?
