tips on fermentation projects in Japan

Postby Algoldor on Mon Mar 19, 2012 8:29 am

Hi to all,
I've finally made it to Japan and I'm now travelling the country searching for various types of fermentations. I wonder if anyone could give me some tips on fermentation products and techniques which I should look for and of course places, companies or research centers in this field. Below is the list of of fermentation products which I know about already, I'll post more once I find out about them. My plan is to visit these places and at least see them and do a basic documentation. I would prefer to get an apprentice position or work in one of them and stay for a while to learn properly. Any contacts and tips are appreciated, I'll share it further. Link on my wiki page is at the end of the document, you can check from time to time my web blog about this trip.

Many thanks! Sincerely Frantisek Algoldor Apfelbeck
