The Japanese have created an infinite number of variations on the theme of miso soup. This marvelous combination of wakamé (sea-tangle) and abura agé (fried bean curd) is particularly popular throughout the Kansai area, which includes the centrally located cities of Kyoto and Osaka. This Kansai-style soup is a favorite item on many Japanese restaurant menus here in America.
