More about Japanese Soy sauce...
Japanese soy sauce or shoyu, is traditionally divided into 5 main categories depending on differences in their ingredients and method of production.
Japanese soy sauces include wheat as a primary ingredient and this tends to give them a slightly sweeter taste than their Chinese counterparts. They also have an alcoholic sherry-like flavor. Japanese and Chinese soy sauces are not really interchangeable. In recipes, Chinese dark soy sauce comes closer to the Japanese sauce in overall flavor, but not in the intensity of the flavor or the texture.
