The residue of the production of soy sauce is used and taken to a sea salt producer where it is dried up with the sea salt. 

Once dried up, it is then mixed with Sansho, a local produce. 
 
This creates Sansho soy powder.  
 
The Sansho gives this product a kick of pepper from the Japanese mountains. 
 
Ideal for seasoning on rice or sauces.

Prefecture: Gifu

Gifu is Japan's literal and figurative heart, with untouched traditional villages nestled in picturesque mountain ranges. Gifu Prefecture is steeped in history, and its significance shines through to this day. The pivotal battle that united the nation took place at  Sekigahara , and you can visit the battlefield today. Swordsmiths practice their craft in Seki, and traditional cormorant fishing is still alive along the Nagara River. The town of Takayama has gone mostly untouched by time, while the nearby villages of Shirakawa-go and  Gokayama  are one of the few places where thatched-roof houses remain in Japan. The dramatic mountains, pure rivers and snowy winters create a remarkably picturesque setting.

Hida beef is a famous specialty—which can be pricey, but is well worth it. Known for its tenderness, it is best served as a steak, but is also found grilled on skewers or added to hotpots. Head to a shabu- shabu restaurant for some good options.
