Where to Buy Natto

If you live in Japan, it’s so easy to find natto in a grocery store or convenience store. It is usually placed around the tofu area.

If you live outside of Japan, try to find it in the Japanese grocery store (or Asian grocery store).

If you live in the US, I found this frozen natto in Walmart: Shirakiku Mito Natto. Please check that out, too.
