Mito’s meibutsu (famous local product) is natto, a goo made from rotten soy beans. It is, as they say, an acquired taste. I once ate it every day for three weeks, testing out my theory that a person can get used to any food. I gave up because I just couldn’t get it down without gagging. This souvenir stand is trying to make it more palatable by adding chocolate to it.
By the way, I’m moving tomorrow, so there probably won’t be any posts until next weekend.
