Tell me about soy sauce and soy sauce use in Japan.

Soup Base

Soy sauce seems to make its way into all of Japanese cuisine one way or another. Often times just as a replacement for salt in cooking. I find that my bottle in my apartment most commonly makes its way into soups. I usually boil green onions and other stuff like a chicken carcass or fish flakes, and adding a couple spoonfuls of soy sauce really brings out the rest of the flavors in the broth. I can then use the broth for some miso soup, a soba noodle base, or even add some curry blocks to turn the whole concoction into a thick curry to eat with rice.
