Usukuchi soy sauce, or Japanese light soy sauce is one of the main varieties of shoyu soy sauces in Japan. It is lighter in color and has a bit of a saltier flavor than its counterpart, koikuchi shoyu or Japanese dark soy sauce. It is also the shoyu sauce of choice for people in the Kansai region or western region of Japan.
