August 8th is the Haccho-miso day. In Japan, Aichi prefecture is noted for miso, and Haccho-miso is one of the specialty goods. Generally speaking, there are three types of miso: Aka-miso, Shiro-miso, and Awase-miso. Aka-miso is ripened longer, so its taste is rich and salty. On the other hand, Shiro-miso is a bit sweet because it uses malted rice. Awase-miso is a mix of Aka and Shiro, and it's the most popular type in daily use.
